Together with medical staff, volunteers and leadership, we share a strong commitment to our patients, one that defines our culture, Service is our Passion.  

More than a name, Service is Our Passion sets UMC apart in Lubbock and throughout the region. Beyond a commitment, it is our “why” at UMC as we care for you and your loved ones.
