Return of live racing to Gulf Greyhound Park

Greyhounds will run 360 races in La Marque through February 24th.  Since 1992, the La Marque landmark Gulf Greyhound Park has been the worlds largest greyhound racing operation and after a two-year hiatus, live racing resumed December 27th, with a series of 36 dates.  The return of live racing meant a round of renovations and upgrades for the park.  According to La Marque Mayor Bobby Hocking, the return of live racing is good for the city because it attracts tourism and creates jobs.

Along with live racing and simulcasting, the park is home to several of Galveston County's signature events including: Magical Winter Lights, Bigass Crawfish Bash and Texas Classic Rockin Food Truck Rally.  The park also holds special events, such as Kentucky Derby Day.  Private suites and ample parking make the park a prime location for trade shows, class reunions, holiday parties and private celebrations.

Mainland Medical Center $5 million dollar addition

Mainland Medical Center is very excited to announce the ground breaking of our Emergency Department’s expansion and renovation project. This $5 million project will add 13 additional private-rooms as well as enhancing the interior aesthetics to our existing Emergency Department. The project will also feature a revamped waiting room with self-service check-in kiosk, triage area, and EMS lounge. “The needs of Galveston County and its surrounding communities are growing and Mainland Medical Center is ready to meet those needs.” said Tripp Montalbo, CEO.  We will continue to have a fully operational Emergency Department throughout the duration of the project. For your safety, please watch for pedestrian and vehicular signage when you are visiting the Emergency Department or dropping someone off. Expected opening date for the expansion is winter 2018. Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life. – HCA Mission Statement
