The Next Houston County Hospital District Meeting is scheduled to be held on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 at 5:30 p.m. at ETMC Crockett. Read the Agenda Read the Financials

Read the By-laws of the Houston County Hospital District
Read Merritt Hawkins Physician Recruitment Survey
Read HCHD's plan to to use Tax Dollars to hire a doctor to work at a Local Privately Owned Clinic and pay him above average salary (See Merritt Hawkins Survey). It appears that Crockett Clinic LLC ran advertisements in a recent issues of the Courier (click the ad to see a larger version) announcing the arrival of a Dr. Brandon Hurlbut to work in their Privately Owned clinic beginning in July. The HCHD has been paying (see most recent financial report) this doctor a monthly living stipend of $1,500 for the past several months to secure his employment.
This raises a question - Is it legal for a taxing entity such as HCHD to use tax payers dollars to fund the employment of a doctor for a Privately Owned business?
