New hospital facility is the best of both worlds

PITTSBURG, TX (KLTV) - It's the best of both worlds: a quality health care facility with a little bit of the country. Our cameras were allowed into the new ETMC Pittsburg facility. The hospital has several high tech attractions. One, being, the Patty and Bo Pilgrim Olympic Center, that features state of the art fitness equipment and a pool.

"We want them to know that they been nurtured and cared for," said Perry Henderson, a hospital senior administrator. "We want them to know they're going to remember the pastoral view out the windows out the back, and the pond, and the grass, but we also want them to remember how we treated them. In a town of 5,000 people you get to treat your family, your neighbors, the folks you sing next to in the choir."

ETMC Pittsburg will hold a community open house this Sunday from 1pm-4pm. You can take tours of the new hospital and fitness center all for free.
