Dante Hall is a retired NFL return man and wide receiver who played eight seasons in the league with the Kansas City Chiefs and the St. Louis Rams. Prior to his time in the NFL, Hall played collegiately at Texas A&M University, where his 4,707 all-purpose yards as a running back and returner rank second all-time behind Darren Lewis. Hall was selected in the 5th round of the 2000 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs, where he would serve as the team’s primary return man. In eight years, Hall had a total of 12,397 return yards, and is currently ranked fifth overall for punt return touchdowns and third overall in kick return touchdowns.
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.
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.
