Thank you, ladies!

Thank you to the ladies of Communities Connected - Hill Country and 737 Club!

Communities Connected - Hill Country

Each year, members of Communities Connected - Hill Country raise funds and vote on which proposed initiatives to support with their collective donations. In 2022, the group raised more than $21,000 to support initiatives at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Marble Falls and its surrounding clinics, such as:

  • Mobile workstations to enhance patient safety, record accuracy and workflow efficiency
  • Vein visualization system to help ensure a successful IV placement on the first attempt and prevent multiple sticks
  • Construction of an additional check-in window at the Horseshoe Bay clinic to improve workflow, wait times and patient satisfaction

737 Club

In 2022, the ladies of the 737 Club raised more than $15,000 to support initiatives at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Austin.

The funds will be used to outfit an Oasis room, a lounge-style, quiet space where staff can retreat and recharge from the challenges of providing quality, compassionate healthcare.

Funds will also support acupuncture therapy, offered at no cost to cancer patients. Acupuncture therapy has been found to help alleviate the pain and side effects of cancer treatment, as well as decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Finally, the 737 Club funds will be used to purchase a bilirubinometer, a device used to measure the levels of bilirubin in the blood, especially for neonatal and pediatric patients.

Like Communities Connected groups, participants in the 737 Club combine their annual individual gifts for a greater impact of giving, collectively determining what initiatives to support with the funds raised at the end of each year.
