Unique challenges for today's healthcare reform in rural Texas:

  • An Economy Based on Self-Employment and Small Businesses
  • Public Health Insurance Plans: Dependence and Need
  • A Stressed Health Care Delivery System
  • Health Care Provider and Workplace Shortage
  • An Aging Rural Population
  • A Sicker, More At-Risk Population
  • Need for Preventative Care, Health and Wellness Resources
  • Increasing Dependence on Technology
  • Effective Emergency Medical Services

I'm very proud to be associated with the dedicated staff of professionals that work at GPCH – many of whom have dedicated their entire careers to meeting the health care needs of our community.
