BENNINGTON, Neb. (May 5, 2022) — The city of Bennington and OneStaff Medical announced an agreement granting OneStaff Medical naming rights to the athletic complex at Neumeyer Farm, a new park and athletic complex to be developed in the heart of Bennington, Nebraska. Once constructed, OneStaff Medical Athletic Complex will comprise seven full-size, multipurpose athletic fields to be used by the community’s youth sports clubs for practices, intra-league games and large athletic tournaments. The project is being developed as a public-private partnership between the city of Bennington, Bennington Community Foundation, Bennington Soccer Club and Bennington Youth Football.
“At OneStaff Medical, we encourage our employees to ‘be bold’ and to go above and beyond to help others be successful. That ethos applies not just to our work, but in all aspects of our lives,” said Chief Executive Officer, Jack Swinney. “The potential Neumeyer Farm brings to the Bennington community is really exciting. I couldn’t think of a more fitting partnership aligned with our company’s culture and values.”
According to Bennington Mayor Zac Johns, the goal is for Neumeyer Farm to become a new “community hub,” connecting rapidly growing housing developments to the city’s more established neighborhoods and downtown district, as well as providing opportunities for both lifelong residents and those new to the community to connect.
“From the beginning, we told the project team to ‘dream big,’ to really think outside the box in terms of how to utilize such a prominent area of town,” Johns said. “I truly believe the design concept they landed on will be a point of pride for our community and an innovation model for parks projects moving forward.”
Johns added, “But, there is a cost to providing great facilities. With our small tax base, the city of Bennington is limited in how much we can contribute to Neumeyer Farm, which means the majority of funding will need to come from grants, government funding and private donors. We are incredibly grateful to the team at OneStaff Medical, not only for their sponsorship, but for demonstrating their belief in this project.”
The initial term of the agreement is five years from completion of the complex, with an option for an extension. OneStaff Medical’s sponsorship will go directly to the Neumeyer Farm Project Fund held at the Bennington Community Foundation, which will be used for costs associated with the design, engineering and construction of the park and athletic complex.
“OneStaff Medical might be one of the fastest growing private companies in the nation, but our roots are local. Many of our employees and their families will be able to benefit from the amenities and features proposed for Neumeyer Farm," said Chief Operating Officer, Jason Avenell. "Jack and I grew up in small town Nebraska, we embrace that humble and community-driven attitude that this project represents. It gives us great pride to know that our company will have helped bring this game-changing project to life.”
