Recently Magruder Hospital opened a walking trail on its campus for staff, patients, visitors and the community. This walking trail was the result of The Magruder Hospital Foundation in conjunction with the employee giving committee at Magruder working together to raise funds for the project. The trail, which begins on the sidewalk in front of the main entrance, measures just over 3/8 of a mile. Work will continue on securing funds for a bridge over the creek to complete the trail to 41 Park St., located on the east side of the hospital campus. When this is finished, another 230 feet will be added to the trail. The decision to fund this project came from the hospital’s mission of community wellness.
Anyone wishing to donate to the final phase of the project can contact the Magruder Foundation at 419-734-3131 ext. 3147.
