Parkland Hospital looks to partner with 16 nursing homes

Parkland Hospital is looking to partner with 16 area nursing homes.

The agreement would provide extra care for patients who aren't ready to go home, but don't need to be in the hospital

Parkland's CEO told commissioners' court that the plan would benefit the county hospital financially and give better health care to Parkland patients.

Some commissioners, including John Wiley Price, were concerned about liability on the hospital and county side.

The hospital's board of managers gave their approval, but Parkland still needs commissioner approval before the end of the month.
