East Texas Medical Center Quitman

ETMC Quitman has a new hospital! If you haven’t seen it, drive to Quitman and visit this beautiful state-of-the-art facility. You might want to stop by at lunchtime because the cafeteria is open to the public. Since the hospital has opened, we have had some new volunteers at the auxiliary; however, we still need more volunteers. You can pick your day and shift to volunteer. Anytime you are able to volunteer is certainly appreciated; it’s a great feeling to volunteer. Come and see what it’s like!

Stop by the hospital or call Judy Johnson at 903-383-3433 for an application.

Get listed.

If you know of/have been to a group that’s not listed here, tell us! Land’s End Residents are always wanting new suggestions for things to do (especially when it’s too cold to do something in the yard).
