New mayor sends out first town newsletter

The newsletter is mailed to every household and posted on the town website,

“I am very passionate about having the community’s opinion expressed before any voting by the Town Council,” Krueger said in her opening newsletter remarks. “Community is my main focus as the mayor.”

The town’s website is also being redesigned, Krueger said .

Hospital’s endoscopy facility is recognized

Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Hurst-Euless-Bedford has received national recognition from the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy for its commitment to patient safety, quality and practices in gastrointestinal endoscopy.

The hospital is the only Texas Health Resources facility to receive the distinction and among only a handful in Dallas-Fort Worth, said Dr. Jay Yepuri, medical director of its endoscopy and special procedures unit.

“This prestigious recognition means GI endoscopy at Texas Health HEB meets the highest evidence-based standards in terms of credentialing, patient care and infection control,” Yepuri said in a statement. “Patients can know all the board-certified gastroenterologists on the hospital’s medical staff practice according to the professional guidelines established by the ASGE.”
