UMC and UT Southwestern Medical Center have forged a new partnership in kidney transplantation, bringing the strengths of both facilities together, creating a patient-centric culture and providing an unsurpassed level of innovative and compassionate care.
Through this new partnership, patients from Lubbock and the surrounding areas will continue to receive pre-transplant treatment, waitlist management and post-transplant care from their established team at UMC, in collaboration with UT Southwestern specialists in Lubbock. Transplant surgeries will be performed at UT Southwestern’s state of the art facilities in Dallas.
On March 6th, UMC celebrated the expansion of the Timothy J. Harnar Regional Burn Center. The expanded Burn Center at UMC is home to four new patient suites, a spacious family waiting room, enhanced teaching facilities and renovated therapeutic areas.
This initial phase of the renovation project, was made possible through a gift from lifetime philanthropist F. Marie Hall. As a native West Texan and daughter of a rural physician, Miss Hall understands the need for a state-of-the-art, comprehensive burn center in our region. Her gift to UMC will benefit families from our region for many generations to come.
After years of struggling to have a child, Betsy and Jeffrey’s brown-eyed baby girl, Lily Grace, was born six weeks early at the UMC Family Birth Center. It was scary, seeing Lily start so small, but the Rosses found comfort in UMC’s model of family-centered maternity care.
