Hunt Regional Emergency Centers Serve Where Needed Most


Kim Saenz, director of the Hunt Regional Emergency Centers in Commerce and Quinlan, reflects on an article about the growth of free-standing emergency centers.  But Kim says the facilities in Commerce and Quinlan are different from many of them, in that they tend to be for-profit facilities located in upscale suburban areas, whereas the local facilities are run by the public Hunt Regional Healthcare system and are located in the areas of greatest need.

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.
