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. At the time, 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.
What It Supports
To date, the HK's tournament has raised more than $2.7 million to support the expansion of health care services at Lake Regional. All proceeds from this year’s tournament will benefit Lake Regional’s Cardiac Catheterization Lab, which is used to diagnose and treat patients with heart and blood vessel disease, and to implant pacemakers. With help from HK's tournament, the Cath Lab will purchase the latest technology for monitoring patients undergoing these procedures. The new hemodynamic system monitors all vital signs, heart rhythm and blood pressures, including internal heart pressures and oxygen usage throughout the body. This information helps the Cath Lab team better diagnose different types of heart disease. Hemodynamic monitoring also provides a tool to organize all this information into a report that follows the patient electronically for reporting to other health care providers.

While moving their roofing company to the Lake was centered around the year-round business opportunities, the owners Melissa and Ben have fallen in love with the community. They've become heavily involved in a variety of charity events and organizations to support the Lake community. HK's Golf Tournament is just one of the many great charity events that our Lake of the Ozarks roofing company is proud to support!
