MGH&FC opens walking trail around hospital campus
Daily exercise is an important component of good health, so Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics is "paving the way to wellness" with a new walking trail around the hospital campus. The trail is completely paved and accessible for wheelchairs, strollers and walkers alike. It is open to all residents, hospital visitors, employees, families and friends.
Part of the hospital remodel, the walking trail is about half a mile in length, promenading around the hospital grounds from the Wellness Garden on the west side of the facility, south along Sherwood Lane, meandering eastward at G Street, then up N 13th Street to Mountain View Drive, where it circles back to the Wellness Garden along Mountain View Drive. Completely paved, the trail connects the existing sidewalk to the new, black-topped portion of the trail, before reconnecting to existing sidewalk.
MGH is approved by the Joint Commission and is a licensed and accredited acute care hospital with a level four emergency trauma designation. There are more than 100 physicians on staff in 18 specialties.
