In the Community
Kingwood Medical Center staff works as a team to invest back into the communities we serve. We are proud to be involved with numerous community organizations in the northeast Houston region.
American Heart Association – Circle of Red
Kingwood Medical Center is a proud supporter of the Greater Lake Houston American Heart Association and Circle of Red. Comprised of local women (and men), Circle of Red members are committed to helping find a cure for the No. 1 killer of women: heart disease. Circle of Red members, including Kingwood Medical Center CEO Melinda Stephenson, attended an October kick-off event to begin fundraising for the 2010 Go Red for Women Luncheon occurring May 7, 2010 at the Airport Marriott. From left to right, attendees included Circle of Red members Cheryl “CJ” Johnson, Melinda Stephenson, Eunice Dennis, Karen Garrison, Annie Velasco, Aggie Green, Dawn Lawrence, Angela Leviner, Stacy Smith, Caroline Smith, Nancy Shortsleeve and Susan White.

American Heart Association’s Heart Walk
Supporting the American Heart Association, more than 250 Kingwood Medical Center supporters attended Heart Walk on November 14. As a hospital offering a full continuum of cardiac care – from interventional cardiology to open heart surgery and cardiac rehabilitation – Kingwood Medical Center employees, staff, physicians and friends raised $7,500 to help raise awareness and fight heart disease. Talk about a team with heart!
American Diabetes Association 2009 Walk
Even the rain could not stop Kingwood Medical Center’s spirited team as they participated in the Step Out to Fight Diabetes Walk on November 21. The 5k was held at Minute Maid Park, and funds raised by supporters from the hospital benefitted the American Diabetes Association’s efforts of education, awareness and research.
