Texas Matters: Rural Hospitals Need First Aid
If you get sick or injured in Texas – you’d best do it in the city. Texas rural health care is in crisis.

This leaves a highly vulnerable population without quick access to health care and emergency treatment.
David Pearson is trying to find a way to reverse the trend. Pearson is the president/CEO of the Texas Organization of Rural and Community Hospitals.
