Would Somervell County Commisioners CLOSE Glen Rose Medical Center if District Election Doesn't Pass?


Would Somervell County Commisioners CLOSE Glen Rose Medical Center if District Election Doesn't Pass?

We have heard, just like last time there was a hospital district election that was going to raise everybody's taxes,that IF THE ELECTION DOES NOT PASS, THE HOSPITAL WILL BE CLOSED AND EVERYONE WILL LOSE THEIR JOBS (cue the scary music movie with some screaming in the background). Not only is this not true and a scare tactic, it got us wondering...

We already know that GRMC is mismanaged, has on at least 1 occasion we know of misplaced a mllion bucks, gave a lease for the nursing home without it being an open, bidded procedure, and is apparently circling the drain. One reason for this is that the county commissioners court, with a push from then commissioner Mike Ford, pushed for a HUGE loan to private entity GRMC which was, ahem, supposed to be paid back by private entity GRMC, but instead got pushed onto the backs of the taxpayer. The 14.4 million dollar certificate of obilgation debacle doesn't include all the interest from that loan that is going through Southwest Securities.

So, from the flip side, and every one of us should get a straight answer from our own county commissioner. IF the hospital district election doesn't pass, will THEY be closing the hospital? Or are they just counting on the likes of Larry Shaw and some big money via a PAC to push this boondoggle through? Perhaps the commisioners wouldn't vote to close the hospital anyway, but it's a very fair question to ask.

Update #1. My county commissioner John Curtis says he would not be voting to close the hospital if the hospital district does not succeed.

Update #2. Same from commissioner James Barnard
