During his time at the 199-bed Southwestern Medical Center, Steve Hyde and his team have overseen some significant success.

One of our daughters is graduating from high school this spring; while the other will be completing middle school and preparing to enter high school. We have an outstanding, very stable leadership team at Southwestern Medical Center so I know that I am leaving that facility in a great place as we turn our attention to the great opportunity in Paris. I have heard so many good things about the employees and physicians here and I look forward to getting with acquainted with the team. We have family in the Metroplex so a great byproduct of the move to Paris is that we will be closer to them.”
