The protection and well-being of our patients and their families is our number one concern. These actions do not represent the mission and values of our organization and the many selfless professionals committed to providing quality care to the children of North Texas,” spokesperson Scott Summerall said. “We have cooperated fully with local authorities throughout the investigation and will continue to do so. We thank the Plano Police Department for their support and swift action in the matter.”
