Irving Hospital District Neighborhood Association - Welcome
The Hospital District is one of the most conveniently located neighborhoods in Irving. As our name implies, we are close to a major hospital and with easy access to Highway 183, we have direct access to everything the Dallas - Fort Worth metroplex has to offer. DFW Airport is a short drive down the highway; the marvelous Irving Arts Center is just up MacArthur Boulevard and the Irving City Hall, Irving Heritage District and Heritage Crossing Station are just minutes away.
The Irving Hospital District Neighborhood Associations mission is to preserve the unique nature of our community, and keep an ongoing dialogue with the city, other neighborhood associations and community groups, as well as each other to make a positive difference in our city. The IHDNA partners with the City of Irving to inform our residents of the issues regarding the city, environment, traffic, crime, neighborhood, and other community concerns. Most importantly, we gather together several times a year as family and friends to relax and enjoy our peaceful neighborhood with all those who have grown-up here or who have family living in the neighborhood.

For more information, visit www.cityofirving.org or call (972) 721-2281.
Residents are reminded to prepare for mosquito season this summer. To defend against the West Nile virus, remember to follow the “Four Ds.” They are:
- Dusk/Dawn – the times of day to stay indoors.
- Dress – wear long sleeves and long pants when outdoors during these times.
- DEET – an ingredient to look for when purchasing and using insect repellent.
- Drain – minimize outside standing water so it does not become a mosquito breeding site.

iALERT Program Provides Local Emergency Alerts
iALERT emergency notification service allows residents to be informed if there is an emergency occurring in their area. iALERT communicates information to listed phone numbers. Residents also can provide additional ways to be contacted such as cellphones, business phones and email. The information entered is protected and will not be used for any other purposes. “iALERT is a program that allows us to notify the public on a large scale. It is an essential tool we use to keep our residents safe and informed,” said Assistant Emergency Management Coordinator Jason Carriere. When a callout is issued about a potential safety hazard or concern, messages will be sent to standard voice and text communication devices that have been registered, including landline phones, cellphones and email. The automated system will attempt to contact the database until a confirmation is received. The system is able to send messages to the entire database or select a certain area of the city based on the addresses in the system. To register for iALERT, click here. There is no cost for the service. Wireless phone and text charges, based on an individual’s rate plan, may apply. For more information, call (972) 721-2100
