your Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Health & Well-being
- October 2005
If you find yourself
between a rock and a hard spot...
Hospital is here to help
Visiting or living in Moab,
Utah is something special this time of year. Fall is,
according to many who live here, absolutely the best
time of year to be in Moab. The month of October has
great weather, and so much to do something for everyone.
In addition to Arches National Park, the Colorado River, the LaSal Mountains,
Canyonlands, Dead Horse Point and all the rest of the natural wonders
of the area, in October we have:
• Seniors Golf Tournament, weekend of October 8th,
• 24 hours of Moab, weekend of October 15th,
• Allen Memorial Hospital’s 8th Annual Benefit Golf tournament on
Friday, October 21st,
• Rumble in the Red Rocks AND the “Other Half” Marathon the
weekend of October 22nd,
• Moab Halloween Bike Festival, weekend of October 28th.
Wow! What a calendar!
Allen Memorial Hospital was pleased to be a part of the
Extreme Safety initiative, a program designed to educate
all that make use of the area of ways to stay safe in
the area. But, the need for Safety does not stop at Labor
Day. Our Fall days can be hot, mosquitoes are in abundance
from dawn to dusk (with the ever present and very real
threat of West Nile Virus) and Moab is a very dry place
(yes, Moab really is a desert). Therefore, before you
head out to the links, the Rumble, or to take that ride
be sure to double-check your safety list. Take water!
Wear a hat! Take more water! Use sunscreen! Drink water!
Use insect repellent! Don’t forget that
water! And, if heading off the beaten path, tell someone
where you are going, take something to eat and take a map!
At Allen Memorial Hospital, we want all our visitors and locals to be
safe (did I mention water?). If, however, you do find yourself between
a rock and a hard spot, we are here to help. A broken bone is an obvious
problem, but dehydration can be even more serious. Our emergency room
is always open and our Board Certified physicians are here to help in
any emergency. We have a full compliment of medical care available including
our full time Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Robert Kloepper just in case the
rock wins the challenge.
your visit. Enjoy our restaurants and shops. And, enjoy
our rocks with the peace of mind that should you need
us, we’ll be here 24 hours a
day, 7 days a week. We hope you stay safe and come back
to visit Moab again soon.
Hospital is located at 719 West 400 North
and may be reached by phone at 435-259-7191.
