Hospital to be honored as ‘Best of the Metrocrest’
The Metrocrest area is healthy because of its community neighbor Baylor Medical Center at Carrollton, says the Metrocrest Chamber, as the hospital is named “Business of the Year” for 2011 by the Metrocrest Chamber of Commerce. Baylor Carrollton President and CEO Michael Sanborn, MS, FACHE, will accept the award Feb. 10 at the 43rd Annual Metrocrest Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet at the Doubletree Hotel in Farmers Branch.
