Texas Hospital Association Recognizes Project in Vickery Meadow

The Texas Hospital Association has awarded its 2017 Excellence in Community Service Award to Texas Health Dallas for its collaboration on a project in Dallas’ refugee-heavy Vickery Meadow neighborhood.

The Northwest Community Center is the result of a group effort between Texas health Resources, Texas Health Dallas, Northwest Bible Church, and Healing Hands Ministries. The organizations built a center to provide english classes, pastoral care, job training tutoring, and a primary care clinic operated by Healing Hands.

Vickery Meadow is a community of more than 26,000 people speaking more than 40 languages. The staff at Northwest Community Center covers an impressive 11 languages. The center opened two years ago.
