Benefiting Local Heart Care

As a Level II STEMI Center, Lake Regional Health System provides an essential service to mid-Missouri: ensuring 180,000 residents and millions of visitors have 24/7 access to lifesaving treatment for heart attacks. And because time is muscle, Lake Regional is proud to be a national leader in heart attack treatment time, delivering care faster than 9 out of 10 hospitals nationwide.*

The Lake Regional heart care team uses specialized X-ray equipment in the Cardiac Catheterization Lab to diagnose and treat patients with heart attacks, as well as heart and blood vessel disease, and to implant pacemakers, performing nearly 2,000 procedures annually.

To ensure Lake of the Ozarks-area residents and visitors continue to have access to the latest heart care technology, all proceeds from the HK's Lake of the Ozarks Open tournament will support heart care at Lake Regional Health System, including technology such as the Philips Azurion 7 Series. This industry-leading imaging equipment provides enhanced visualization for finding and treating blockages in the heart and vessels while delivering the lowest possible dose of radiation, improving safety for patients and physicians.

Our History
In the early 1970s, a group of community-minded, lake-area residents realized the need for medical services to treat existing homeowners and the growing second homeowner, retiree and tourist populations. Then, the closest hospital was 50 miles away. Many people who suffered trauma, heart attacks or other serious health conditions did not survive because medical assistance was not immediately available.

Harold Koplar, founder of The Lodge of Four Seasons, was one of the visionaries who believed the area needed a hospital. To help provide funding, the HK's Annual Hospital Benefit Golf Tournament (named for Koplar) was established. In January 1978, Lake of the Ozarks General Hospital, later renamed Lake Regional Hospital, opened its doors.

Our Growth
Each year, the nonprofit hospital grew, investing income over expenses and charitable contributions into providing more health care services for the lake region. Because of generous contributions and sound fiscal management, the hospital now is a regional health system, providing trauma services, surgery and complete cardiac, cancer and orthopedic care.
