Carrus Specialty Hospital Honors Supporters


SHERMAN, TX---In Sherman, dignitaries and supporters came out for a ceremony at the soon-to-open Carrus Specialty Hospital. You've probably seen the construction off Highway 82 in Sherman near FM 1417. The hospital will be used to treat patients who need long-term acute care. According to Carrus' CEO, today's ceremony was meant to honor all the folks who've put so much hard work and dedication into finishing the building.

"We're the only long term acute care hospital between Plano and Oklahoma City. We serve a huge amount of folks. Lots of folks have to travel for health care and this gives them an opportunity to come home, be close to loved ones, for their final recuperation," says Carrus CEO, Travis Roderick.

The current Carrus Medical Center is on the fourth floor of the Texoma Medical Center in Denison. Hospital officials say, come January, the rehab facility part of the hospital will be complete and they'll begin to move patients in, soon after.
