The Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council, representing a 17-county area, recognized Kaufman County Judge Hal Richards for supporting the healthcare systems within all communities in Kaufman County. Traditionally, the Council selects an individual or a couple to receive this award but this year, the Council decided to change that tradition for 2021 and recognize the county judges and their teams, including public health officials, for their tremendous support of hospitals in the 17-county area during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I am extremely honored to be recognized for this award, and I want Kaufman County residents to know that it truly is a team effort,” said Judge Richards. “There are dozens of people throughout the County who have worked with us side-by-side to deliver the health services necessary to fight this pandemic. It takes everyone, including our residents, to stay ahead of it.”
The announcement was made this week by Mr. W. Stephen Love, President/CEO of the Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council who sent his appreciation and congratulations to the Judge for the County’s conscientious efforts which have been made to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
