Changes Will Bring Additional Services, Larger Emergency Room
The Emergency Department on PRMC South Campus, located on 820 Clarksville Street, will close on October 12th at 7:00 a.m. and all services will be located on PRMC North Campus Emergency Department, located on 865 DeShong Drive. All emergency medical services will be rerouted and directed to the North Campus Emergency Department.
“With the move and consolidation of our Emergency Department services to one location we hope that it provides easier access to not only the people in the community of Paris, but also those surrounding communities that we serve. We continue to expand and improve the care we provide the region and this is an important step in that process.” said PRMC CEO Bill Porter.
The Emergency Department consolidation is just part of the nearly completed $25 million “Northward Bound” facility investment project. The expansion in the Emergency Department includes the addition of six new treatments bays (for a total of 17) and a new “Fast Track,” area which allows non-urgent visits to be seen more quickly. There is also an expanded “Fast Track” waiting area for patients and their families.
“The newly renovated and expanded North Campus ED will allow us to better serve our patients,” said Carolyn Kain, Director of Emergency Department for Paris Regional Medical Center. “We are committed to providing our patients with the highest level of compassionate care and we believe this expansion will allow us to meet the needs of our region for a long time.”

The staff at “Fender Bender” magazine, a national collision industry publication, thought it was a top notch facility as well. So much so that they featured it in their July issue, showcasing the Hearne’s new facility and a few others in the nation with great curb appeal.

If you have ever thought “I have so much to do, there is just not enough time for me to do it all,” then you need to hear this month’s Brown Bag Seminar. Take the TIME to come by for “The Secret of Productivity–TIME!”
“We have 14 entries and two student entries that were accepted,” R3bi Director Fred Green said. “We had some from outside our area. I got one from New York. I got one from Florida.”
Of the 16 submitted plans submitted by the Sept. 5 midnight deadline, 12 were from Lamar County, with the rest from Hopkins County, Hunt County, Red River County and Franklin County.
“I’m a little disappointed. We had seven other people who registered buy missed the deadline,” Green said. “I feel when you’re going to hand somebody a $10,000 prize, there should be a little more response from the entrepreneurs and business community. The quality of the submissions is extremely good, and the judges have a tough decision.”
Those judges include:
The top three semifinalists will be invited to submit a YouTube video making an elevator pitch based on their business plans. Those videos will be used to help select the winner. The winners are expected to be announced by the end of the month.
