Glen Rose Medical Center Shows Off

Posted on Jul 25 by

Glen Rose Medical Center is happy to show off two new passenger vans used for patient transport. Some of you may have seen the vans around Glen Rose and surrounding communities. The vans were made possible by a matching grant from the Texas Department of Agriculture, State Office of Rural Health and funds donated by the Dr. Roger E. Marks Healthcare Foundation, United Fund of Somervell County and the Glen Rose Lions Club. To qualify for the grant, funds had to be raised to m…atch the grant amount. The Dr. Roger E. Marks Healthcare Foundation held their first annual golf tournament in November of 2016 with a lofty goal of raising $25,000. With word out to other organizations the Glen Rose Lions Club and United Fund of Somervell County immediately responded with monetary commitments for any shortfall of the $25,000 goal which was necessary to qualify for the matching grant. The golf tournament was successful in raising more than half the needed funds necessary to qualify for the grant. The Glen Rose Lions Club and United Fund of Somervell...

Posted on Jun 27 by

We don’t like to toot our own horn, but we just can’t help it. As a community we came together on June 16, 2017 and did it again. Glen Rose Medical Center and 95.3 KOME teamed up for Mission 95 for the 3rd year, to help raise the awareness of the shortage of blood donations during the summer months. The community came out and donated more than 80 pints of blood. We are thrilled with the results.  Carter is happy and we are proud of Somervell County! Here’s the letter Carter BloodCare sent to the Glen Rose Reporter. Big thanks to all that supported the blood drive. Carter Letter  ...

MISSION 95, 2017

Posted on May 30 by

Glen Rose Medical Center and 95.3 KOME have partnered for the 3rd annual Mission 95 blood drive.  The first year Carter BloodCare told us we were crazy, the second year they told us we couldn’t possibly do it again.  We love a challenge!  The past 2 years the residents of Somervell and surrounding counties have helped us pass our goal, collecting more than 200 pints of blood. Every donation saves 3 lives, this means with your help we have saved over 600 lives! Can you believe 30 minutes of your time and 1 pint of blood can save the lives of 3 people? This year we challenge you again! To sweeten the deal Carter will give each person that donates a free t-shirt, who doesn’t love a shirt that shows the world you saved a life. We will host the blood drive at the Somervell County Expo parking lot on Friday, June 16, 2017 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. If you would like more information about the blood drive tune in to 95.3 KOME or call Lisa Andersen at...
