WELCOME, PHYSICIANS AND providers of West Texas and Eastern New Mexico, to this first issue of Physician Notes. It is my pleasure to share with you what will be an ongoing introduction to the medical staff, services and offerings of UMC Health System. In partnership with the providers of Texas Tech, UMC Physicians and the Lubbock community, we are grateful for your support and trust as we care for your patients. Our goal is to serve in partnership with you as well. What sets UMC apart? I have been chief medical officer for six years. I joined the team for one primary reason: Although UMC is many things — a county hospital, an academic medical center and a LevelI Trauma Center — it has grown and emerged as a provider and employer of choice for our region. I joined UMC because the culture is strong — it demonstrates that service is our passion, and it can be seen in the satisfaction of both patients and staff. When a culture is strong, strategy is easier to implement and results easier to sustain. Having practiced at UMC for several years, I saw firsthand the cultural transformation achieved during the past decade — and that is why I am here. I hope you enjoy this first issue. I welcome the opportunity, as does our UMC leadership, to reflect in these pages what is important to you.
