    Maulin Patel, MD

    Dr. Patel personally took a patient to a hospital unit to say goodbye to their sister who had passed away. This was a small act of service that made a huge impact on the patient and their family. Thank you, Dr. Patel, for caring for our patients in such a loving way! 

  • Employee of the Month

    Michael Strong

    Michael Strong, MD

    TTUHSC, Department of Pediatrics

    A patient who was homeless came into the EC and couldn’t be discharged until a safe discharge plan could be arranged. Dr. Strong kindly stepped in and took excellent care of the patient who was in need of extra attention. He exemplifies Service is our Passion!

  • Employee of the Month

    Rose Martinez

    Rose Martinez, PTA

    Cardiac Rehab

    While walking through the lobby, Rose noticed a man looking frazzled. He was trying to fill out a questionnaire for his evaluation and his English was limited. Being bilingual, Rose took the time to explain all the instructions in Spanish. Even though this took some time out of her busy day, Rose was happy to help!
