Grand Opening of Hangers of Hope Highland Village https://bethesdaclinic.org/grand-opening-of-hangers-of-hope-highland-village/ Thu, 21 Jun 2018 06:00:51 +0000 http://bethesdaclinic.org/?p=1504 The post Grand Opening of Hangers of Hope Highland Village appeared first on Bethesda Health Clinic.

On Thursday, June 21st, hundreds of shoppers gathered to find good deals at the Grand Opening of our new Hangers of Hope Thrift store. Nestled at 3826 Troup Highway by Super 1 Foods, the store represents a third location in Tyler. While the Loop store is the largest, the Troup Highway location has over 12,000 square feet and will eventually replace the South Broadway location, which will be phased out in the Fall.

KVNE and Chick-Fil-A joined the festivities by passing out food to guests. KVNE had a prayer station outside the front doors, with coffee and donuts, while Chick-Fil-A brought chicken biscuits and the famous CFA cow.

The Tyler Area Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting at 9 AM, when Bethesda CEO Dr. John English and Bethesda Board President Ramsey Starks cut the ribbon to welcome shoppers to the new store.

Members of The Bethesda Alliance served refreshments provided by Super 1 Foods.

Hangers of Hope relies entirely on donated items from the community, and in turn offers great deals on clothing, furniture and household items.

“We are so proud to be opening another location, which allows us to continue to fund our mission, said CEO Dr. John English. “All the proceeds from this store will provide affordable medical and dental care for hardworking, low-income East Texans.

Bethesda Health Clinic hosted the annual Dr. Luke Awards Ceremony & Dinner at Willow Brook Country Club on Saturday evening, February 17th.

The newest inductees into the Dr. Luke Society were Dr. Virgilio Gonzalez and Dr. Glen Graves. These gentlemen were honored because their professional and personal lives reflect the attributes of Saint Luke, who is referred to as “the Beloved Physician in the New Testament book of Acts.  

They join an illustrious group of 38 previous honorees from the Smith County area who share Saint Luke’s commitment to respect all persons, his concern for the poor and his hope for God’s mercy and forgiveness for all.

Almost 300 friends, family members, past Dr. Luke recipients and Bethesda supporters celebrated the lives and careers of both Dr. Gonzalez and Dr. Graves.
Said Dr. Virgilio Gonzalez, “I have felt God’s presence in my life from a very young age. He guided me through poverty, protected me during the horrors of the Japanese occupation in World War II, and surrounded me with blessings as I immigrated to the promise of the United States of America. I felt His hand leading me to Tyler to practice Pathology and to find a home for my family in this wonderful community. I am honored to be among those faithful professionals who are members of the Doctor Luke Society.

Said Dr. Glen Graves, “My life’s goal is to glorify Jesus. Easier said than done. But I can do this through rheumatology, including my Bethesda patients. God often uses a physician to find out what the patient really needs (and it might not be a pill). I am honored and humbled to be inducted into the Doctor Luke Society.

Proceeds from this event benefit the patients of Bethesda Health Clinic and help fulfill our vision to be Christ in action, bringing healing, help and hope to those in need.

The East Texas Mission of Mercy (ETMOM) was held on Saturday, February 24th, 2018. ETMOM is a bi-annual mission that provides free dental treatments and eye examinations for low income families that cannot otherwise afford dental or eye care.

Screenings took place at Tyler Junior College, then patients were either treated there or sent to other Tyler area locations for treatment. Of the approximately 300 patients who were screened at TJC, Bethesda Health Clinic received and treated about 30. Services provided at Bethesda included dental examinations, extractions and fillings.

All of the dentists and dental assistants who participated at Bethesda were volunteers giving their time and skills for those in need.
