Installing Curbs and Gutters
Crews with Rentenbach Constructors have been busy this month, working section by section, to install curbs and gutters in the parking lots of Medical Arts Hospital and Medical Arts Clinic. The work is being paid for by a $75,000 grant – Rural Health Facility Capital Improvement Program – that the hospital received from the Texas Department of Agriculture. Crews have been working section by section to minimize the disturbance to hospital patients and visitors, according to Melissa Matlock, Director of Community Relations for the hospital.
