Joshua Tree National Park
HDMC is one of 50 hospitals nation wide to partner with the National Park Service for their 2015 centennial celebration. The intent of the partnership is to raise community awareness regarding health benefits associated with accessing our national parks. HDMC has partnered with the Joshua Tree National Park to launch the "Take A Hike" program where HDMC physicians prescribe use of the park for exercise and its related benefits while enjoying the beauty of the park. Out of the partnership has also come quarterly "Ranger/Doctor Hikes" that were developed for community benefit; these events are guided hikes led by a park ranger and emergency medicine physician, Todd Sallenbach, M.D. The hike is free and promoted within the community.
