David Lopez President & CEO, Harris County Hospital
After the joint meeting, the ..., 8 Jan 2013 [cached]
After the joint meeting, the commissioners court held its regular session, which included a spirited exchange between Harris County Hospital District President Dr. David Lopez and members of the court regarding the proposed purchase of an ambulatory surgical center at 8111 Southwest Freeway. Listen
"One of our concerns that we have had for some time is that we don't have enough operating rooms," Lopez said.
"Sir, I'm not familiar that they were doing that," Lopez responded. "I had heard they were, but I don't know that they were actually doing so, or not."
Emmett chastised Lopez for not informing members of the commissioners court about the plan in advance.
The commissioners court voted unanimously to refer the proposal to the Public Infrastructure Department and the Budget Office, and asked Lopez to deliver his entire file on the proposed purchase to the county judge's office by noon.
