Hunt Regional Healthcare

Kim Saenz, director of the Hunt Regional Emergency Medical Center in Commerce, discusses an article describing the trend toward rural hospitals closing in favor of emergency centers.  That's the recommendation of the Medicare Payment Advisory Committee, and of course, that is exactly what has happened in Commerce.  Kim also reports on the progress being made on construction of a similar emergency medical center in Quinlan.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
