Smithville Regional Hospital is not just a community health provider - we are actively involved in offering community outreach programs designed to stress education and prevention. From health screening programs to CPR training, SRH reaches into the community at large, bringing healthcare services out from behind hospital and health center walls, directly to those we serve.

Many of our programs are offered free of charge to our community. We invite you to learn more about the outreach programs that put SRH professionals into schools, day cares and senior centers:

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety (1997), 30% of all fatalities were the result of alcohol-related crashes. Zero tolerance is the law for minors in Texas.

To engage kids in a drunk or drugged driver prevention program, SRH will host the DWEyes Fatal Vision program. Participants will wear goggles and experience the visual distortion, loss of balance, and lack of control that make drinking drivers so dangerous.

This hands-on teaching method helps to demonstrate the impairing effects of drugs and alcohol, and how quickly impairment can turn fun into devastating consequences. The DWEyes program includes: Walk the Line, Stand on One Leg, Touch an Object, Give a High Five, Pick up Objects, Dribbling Drills, Shooting Baskets, Playing Catch, Maneuver a Course

These activities help to show that normally good reflexes mean nothing when a person is impaired by drugs or alcohol. For more information please call Deanna Gillespie at (512) 237-5737 or dgillespie@srhnet.org.

SRH will be hosting car seat education classes every other Friday. We will also be distributing car seats to needy families (while supplies last). To sign up for this program or for more information, please call (512) 237-5755 or 237-5737.

Depending on the availability of the areas, we like to show off the new Radiological services, for example. We are proud of our growth and modern technology and want to share it with you! To schedule a Hospital tour, please call between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday: (512) 360-2121 or email jglynn@srhnet.org.
