Heart Institute of East Texas Wins Beautification Award
[Lufkin, TX – September 12, 2018] Angelina Beautiful/Clean (AB/C) honored the Heart Institute of East Texas with a Beautification Award. An award presentation took place on September 7, 2018 at Heart Institute of East Texas – Vein and Leg Clinic located at 209 Gaslight Blvd, Lufkin, TX 75904.
The Beautification Award is an environmental award program that recognizes individuals, organizations and businesses that have demonstrated exceptional leadership in protecting or enhancing our local environment. This is in recognition of achievement in helping to beautify the Angelina County area by landscaping, building improvement and other means which enhances the beauty of our Deep East Texas community.
The Heart Institute of East Texas was recognized for their achievement in investing into our local economy with this award from Angelina Beautiful/Clean and Keep Lufkin Beautiful. The medical facility was originally occupied in the 1980’s by the Heart Institute of East Texas until they moved to a larger building across the street. It was rented out to tenants until two years ago when expansion of the practice occurred, and they needed more space. Instead of demolishing the building, they wanted to keep the heart of the structure that has served over four generations of patients and replaced interior flooring, carpet, lighting, and more while bringing back the beauty of the exterior as well with landscaping and painting.
Per Jennifer La Corte, AB/C Executive Director, “Beautification brings so much more to a community than just something nice to look at. By placing emphasis in the planning stages of bringing this building back to life, brings the idea of art and nature as part of the healing process instead of just thinking of it as an afterthought. Features in building and landscaping design create a more restorative environment for patients to receive medical care that has more positive outcomes.”
Angelina Beautiful/Clean has a mission to educate and empower East Texans to take responsibility for enhancing their community environment and serves Angelina County to help make it a cleaner, greener place to live, work and play.
