“We’ve seen a very big benefit from our partnership,” Sims said, pointing out the county’s continued support that includes recently increasing its contract with the clinic.

WAXAHACHIE – Sen. Kip Averitt and Rep. Jim Pitts joined County officials for a tour of Hope Clinic Wednesday morning, where they heard about the Clinic’s partnership with Ellis County as well as its progress toward the goal of becoming a federally qualified health center.

"We’ve seen a good benefit from this public-private partnership, especially faith based," said Commissioner Heath Sims, pct. 3, noting the County has contracted with Hope Clinic for indigent health care since 2005. "It’s not an entitlement. There is accountability. There is responsibility. We see people coming in and realizing that there are people who care about them, and when they learn to care about themselves, then they step back up and get back into the work force."
