The Nashville Post received a press release from Essent last year---almost a year ago---foretelling two events:
Essent consolidates Texas hospital campusSoooo, which proved to be true? Both? One? or, none (right answer)! So, does that mean that the access is poor, the quality of care needs strengthening, and the services are un-coordinated?

Essent Healthcare will consolidate the acute-care services of Paris Regional Medical Center in Paris, Texas into a single campus by next fall. The move is designed to improve access for patients, strengthen the quality of care and provide for better coordinated services. Essent owns five hospitals and is in the process of acquiring its sixth.
Hmmm.... I did say that it was a year ago, didn't I?
I wonder if that press release was from the same person that said Dux was leaving immediately, er ah, I mean, by October 1st. Probably going to announce that fall has been delayed.
