Commerce hospital to reopen tonight

COMMERCE — Hunt Regional Community Hospital at Commerce announced they would reopen at 7 p.m. tonight.

“The facility was temporarily closed last Wednesday due to a rodent infestation.  Rodents were discovered in roof-top traps set by a company retained by Hunt Regional for pest control at all facilities,” the release read. “It is suspected the rats originated in an abandoned building south of Hunt Regional Community Hospital. Exterminators determined the pests were contained in the roof and attic space of the hospital facility.”

According to the hospital, they reported the incident to the Texas Department of Health and hospital officials have followed TDH guidelines through the entire process.

“It is estimated the complete eradication, remediation and repairs will cost Hunt Regional Healthcare more than $20,000,” the release read.
