Healing in Body, Mind and Spirit|

I’m Doug Hawthorne, CEO of Texas Health Resources, with “The Business of Health Care Report.”
Texas Health is proud to have received the 2012 Spirit of CONTACT award from the Dallas CONTACT crisis intervention organization. CONTACT recognized Texas Health for our support of area health and human services through programs that minister to the mind and spirit, as well as the body.
It is our privilege to work closely with CONTACT in its life-saving mission of meeting the emotional and mental health needs of the people in the communities we serve.
For example, Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas implemented the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner program, the first of its kind in Dallas County. Trained staff members help victims to be cared for in a safe, respectful and professional manner, while working to collect medical forensic evidence.
Texas Health also created “The Family Violence and Your Workplace” toolkit for companies to use in educating their employees about prevention of family violence.
We’re also expanding an eating disorders program at Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas. It will be the first hospital-based, adult inpatient program in the Metroplex designed to treat this serious mental health condition.
Together with community groups like the CONTACT crisis intervention organization , we work to heal body, mind and spirit.
For our faith-based family of health care — Texas Health Presbyterian, Texas Health Harris Methodist and Texas Health Arlington Memorial — I’m Doug Hawthorne.
