PLANO, TEXAS (Nov. 28, 2018)—Community Hospital Corporation (CHC) and the Gainesville Hospital District (GHD) Board of Directors recently agreed that, through a joint arrangement between GHD and CHC, North Texas Medical Center (NTMC) would be leased to and operated by a newly created CHC organization. The hospital has been under management by CHC Consulting, the management and consulting arm of CHC, since May of this year. The new lease arrangement will go into effect December 1, 2018.
CHC President and CEO Jim Kendrick shared, “This is a tremendous opportunity to work together to strengthen the hospital and the community for the future. We are excited to leverage CHC’s full expertise, resources and operational best practices to preserve and grow healthcare services locally.”

With CHC, we are on a path of renewal that allows us to advance on many levels—from operational and financial performance to quality of patient care. We are wholeheartedly committed to serving the healthcare needs of Cooke County and neighboring communities.”
NTMC is a 60-bed acute care hospital situated on 52 acres located within the city limits of Gainesville, a community approximately 60 miles north of Dallas-Fort Worth and five miles south of the Texas-Oklahoma border. Since NTMC’s campus was rebuilt in 2004, it has continued to grow to better serve the medical needs of the North Texas area.
