He said CTHA was formed to provide a choice for local residents whet^ they need medical attention and to Maintain quality care. He said being ^ble to negotiate as a group will aflow more services to be offered in New Braunfels, rather than San Antonio. “This way, it will allow those people to stay here in New Braunfels and have a choice for their physician,” he said.
