Play a round “fore” healthcare

Brenham golf tournament raises funds to support the Emergency Department renovation project.

Teeing off for the 27th annual Healthcare Classic Golf Tournament, 87 players and sponsors helped raise more than $44,700 to help fund a vital renovation of the Emergency Department at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Brenham.

The planned expansion will include two new exam rooms to serve the growing population, as well as enhancements to patient privacy and safety. The project is entirely funded by philanthropy.

“It’s important to keep state-of-the-art care accessible to our community, especially in an emergency when every second counts,” says Joel Schretenthaler, chairman of the board for Baylor Scott & White Central Texas Foundation – Brenham. “It’s clear from the generous support we receive that our community is dedicated to this project and to high-quality local health care.”

Mr. Schretenthaler cares for his neighbors in Brenham as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. “It is an honor to provide care to people we go to church with and see in the grocery isle,” he says. “It doesn’t matter if you grew up in Brenham or if you moved here in adulthood—Baylor Scott & White is committed to providing for all your family’s health care needs.”
