"Stratton on E.H.T.: We reported Dayton City officials have been in discussions with a company called Emergency Hospitals of Texas about possibly locating a clinic in Dayton. Emergency Hospitals representatives have also talked with Bruce Stratton, President of the Liberty County Hospital District Board about the prospect of a new urgent care facility. Mr. Stratton said talks have specifically centered on an agreement that would allow a future Dayton Emergency Clinic to bill Medicare and Medicaid, something Emergency Hospitals of Texas is not licensed to do. Hospital District President Bruce Stratton said he believes such an agreement can be accomplished."
If it is true that Liberty Hospital District's President Bruce Stratton is working to promote an urgent care medical facility in Dayton through the use of Liberty County taxpayer collected money, that is good news.
There has always been a very deep distrust and resentment by Dayton land owners and taxpayers who have been forced to pay taxes for a hospital across the river into Liberty, Texas.
We will be watching and reporting on whether Stratton's claims are reality or just hyperbole.
