Communities are judged by their schools, housing and access to medical care.  Commerce Rotary Club members were pleased to listen to a presentation by Alicia Wittkopf, Director of Strategic Marketing Communications and the Health Care Foundation, on the Emergency Health Care Facility in Commerce and Health Care in Hunt County.  
The new Emergency Health  Care facility located on Highway 50 in Commerce was opened in 2015 and has already averaged over 800 patient visits per month. The 24/7  emergency care services includes  outpatient lab, imaging, and infusion therapy services. There have already emerged several life saving stories from that facility and Care Flight played a major role.
The Commerce Emergency Health Care facility is part of the Hunt Regional Health Care System and the Hunt County Regional Medical Center is one of only 37 facilities in the US with the highest rating in surgical site-infection prevention and was the 2014 Top performer on Key Quality measures such as Heart Failure Care, Immunization Services, Pre-Natal Care and Pneumonic care based on a joint commission study.
All-in-all, Wittkopf's presentation left us with a good impression that we here in Commerce have the best Medical Emergency and Health care available; a great feeling.
