A Visit with Congresswoman Kay Granger

Texas Health Fort Worth had the privilege of hosting Congresswoman Kay Granger on Tuesday, June 30. She came to tour our new palliative care unit, which is opening on July 15. The Congresswoman has been incredibly supportive of this new resource for our community, and spent an hour with the new palliative care team and several of our hospital leaders.

Several years ago, we sat down with Congresswoman Granger and discussed our plans to build a dedicated palliative care unit. Upon hearing of Tarrant County’s need for such services, she immediately put the full force of her leadership into action and helped us secure federal funding, which has helped make this dream of ours a reality. We want to thank you, Congresswoman, for your support of this project. Your leadership in our community and in DC is truly remarkable.
