Following yesterday’s announcement that Park Cities Historic and Preservation Society was changing its name to Preservation Park Cities, another North Texas nonprofit has revealed that it’s adapting its name.
Henceforth Healing Hands Ministry will be known as HHM Health in order “to reflect the agency’s role in providing healthcare for the uninsured and underserved throughout the Dallas and surrounding areas with compassionate, quality and affordable healthcare.
According to HHM Health CEO Brian Hawkins, “Quality healthcare is a basic human need and many in our community who are living in poverty do not have access to quality care. HHM is critical to solving this problem by providing barrier-free access to quality healthcare to many of those in need. Healing Hands never closed its doors to their patients, even during the worldwide pandemic.”
HHM Health will continue to provide its seven service lines — behavioral health, dental, pediatric, two family practice clinics, women’s clinic and the Rosewood Vision Center. During the 2020 pandemic, the program had “more than 47,000 visits.”
In order to provide such services, the inaugural Healing Hands Luncheon Co-Chairs Gina and Ken Betts and Amy and Paul Wilson and Honorary Chair Pam Busbee have arranged to have NFL Hall of Famer/Heisman Trophy Winner Tim Brown as the keynote speaker at the Dallas Arboretum on Thursday, October 14.
In honor of its generous support of HHM Health’s Rosewood Vision Center, a special award will be presented to The Rosewood Foundation and the late Caroline Rose Hunt family.
