Daily exercise is an important component of good health, so Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics is “paving the way to wellness” with a new walking trail around the hospital campus.¬† The trail is completely paved and accessible for wheelchairs, strollers and walkers alike.¬† It is open to all residents, hospital visitors, employees, families and friends.

Part of the hospital remodel, the walking trail is about half a mile in length, promenading around the hospital grounds from the Wellness Garden on the west side of the facility, south along Sherwood Lane, meandering eastward at G Street, then up N 13th Street to Mountain View Drive, where it circles back to the Wellness Garden along Mountain View Drive. Completely paved, the trail connects the existing sidewalk to the new, black-topped portion of the trail, before reconnecting to existing sidewalk.

MGH is approved by the Joint Commission and is a licensed and accredited acute care hospital with a level four emergency trauma designation. There are more than 100 physicians on staff in 18 specialties.
