    This growth of membership, corporate sponsorship and staff is most impressive in this depressed economy! I am delighted to be associated with the HHCC this month for the ribbon cutting of St. Anthony’s Hospital (formerly Renaissance Hospital Houston) on Little York Road. CEO Jason Fisher has big plans for this community hospital!
