The medical community at large is facing many challenges, changes and health care continues to evolve. Locally, Memorial Hospital and Clinic Board of Directors and Administration hosted a luncheon featuring Texas’ 4th Congressional District Congressman John Ratcliffe, Monday, September 14, 2015 at 11:30 am, in the Plaza Conference Room.
Later in the day, he announced the opening of a local mobile office. The office will be open two days each month and located in the Hopkins County Courthouse.
He represents Sulphur Springs (Hopkins County) as well as 17 additional counties — an area that includes some counties along the Red River north of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, including semi-rural Rockwall County and the large non-urbanized portion of Collin County. It also includes counties in East Texas such as Rains County. As of the 2000 census, District 4 represents 651,620 people.
Congressman Ratcliff responded to a question from KSST News regarding any pending legislation focused on healthcare (see video).
