Celebration! White Rock Sponsor Spotlight: Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake
For more than half a century, Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake has been the community hospital for thousands of White Rock-area families – not to mention lake visitors who have the odd bike crash or twisted ankle.
The hospital has been recognized as an Accredited Chest Pain Center by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care for the ability to quickly recognize and treat patients suffering from a heart attack. In addition, the American Heart Association awarded Doctors the “Get With The Guidelines®” Gold Plus Achievement Award for Heart Failure and Stroke.
As a longtime member of the White Rock Lake community, the hospital frequently sponsors White Rock-area events that promote health and well-being. Doctors is also the official wellness partner of the YMCA at White Rock, with whom they are co-sponsoring a series of nutrition classes every other month.
Celebration! White Rock is honored to have Doctors Hospital of White Rock Lake as one of its inaugural sponsors.
“We really enjoy supporting a variety of functions and groups within our community,” says Denise Krajewski, the hospital’s Chief Nursing Officer. “The lake is in our backyard and we want to be the community healthcare provider of choice for any injuries or health concerns for the patrons at the lake.”
The hospital’s love for the lake extends to the staff as well, she says.
“We have many avid bikers, walkers and runners on our staff who love the lake and all it has to offer,” she says. “The staff is excited about Celebration! White Rock, and several of them will be volunteering to help make the event successful.”
Celebration! White Rock is on Thursday, April 10, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at historic Winfrey Point. The event will feature a 5K race, a 10K race, music and more. Race registration is at celebrationwhiterock.org.
Proceeds from Celebration! White Rock will benefit improvement projects at the park, including the Stone Tables and Pavilion, reconstruction of fishing piers, and other much-needed infrastructure projects.
The White Rock Lake Conservancy was founded in 2008 by a group of park enthusiasts to enhance the identity, beauty and safety of White Rock Lake in cooperation with Dallas Park and Recreation and other neighborhood and lake volunteer groups. For more information, visit celebrationwhiterock.org.
