McKenna supports program to address family violence Looking Back As a member of the Greater San Antonio Hospital Council, McKenna Memorial Hospital is participating in a new project to help stop domestic violence in Bexar, Comal and surrounding counties. Domestic violence affects communities through increased health care costs, loss of time, money and life as well as affecting a broad spectrum of the population. The Greater San Antonio Hospital Council is distributing an informative pocket card to 23 counties including Comal County. The card offers a short quiz to help victims identify themselves and to help them stay safe. These cards are available in hospital emergency rooms and other locations throughout the hospitals for victims to take, use and get help. “These cards provide a means of getting printed information to victims of family violence by making assistance, help and locations of agencies and services available in private locations,” said Marion P. “Johnny” Johnson, McKenna Memorial Hospital president. The cards, printed in English and Spanish, are custom tailored to each county by providing the local phone numbers for help lines and hotlines. Methodist Healthcare System has donated the printing of the cards for Comal County. By making victims of violence more aware of the opportunities for help, it is hoped that the result will be less incidence of domestic violence within the communities served by the hospitals.
