Rev brings together food, fun and a night of celebration to kick off the greatest month in racing. The best part, though, is that it's all for a good cause. Funds raised support IU Health Foundation statewide trauma and critical care programs. These funds provide care for drivers and patrons at the IU Health Emergency Medical Center located at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and for patients across Indiana in need of critical care.

IU Health Methodist Hospital and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway have a relationship dating to the racetrack’s earliest days and, like the Indianapolis 500, are poised to move forward for years to come. From the hospital’s first motorized ambulance in 1910 to the first liftoff of the LifeLine helicopter in 1970 to today, IU Health Methodist Hospital and IMS have worked together to promote the safety of race car drivers and Hoosiers alike. As we approach the 106th Running of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing, Rev is a celebration of the continued partnership between these influential Hoosier institutions.

The IU Health Trauma System has provided an invaluable resource for injured children and adults in Indiana. The ability to ensure seamless transition in care from time of injury to definitive care has saved many lives. The proposal demonstrates opportunities to fill in clinical gaps in coverage to ensure the most comprehensive trauma system for those injured in Indiana. These enhancements will provide valuable resources to our providers, patients, and families. The IU Health trauma system has a clear direction with a track record of success and improved patient outcomes. IU Health senior leadership has supported the development of the trauma system, but there is a lingering need for dedicated statewide funding to continue the growth of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive trauma system.
