What is UMC?


UMC is a team of healthcare providers who together call UMC our hospital.

UMC has developed a strong and enduring culture, adhering to the motto Service is Our Passion, which sustains UMC as the employer of choice and the provider of choice for the West Texas and Eastern New Mexico region.

Our healthcare team’s mission is to serve all by providing safe, high quality care; to achieve excellent financial performance; and to train tomorrow’s healthcare professionals as the primary teaching hospital for the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. UMC has a strong and enduring partnership with Texas Tech which helps fulfill UMC’s mission and helps support Tech’s academic pursuits of education and research. As one grows, the other prospers.

During the last 40 years UMC-- a public hospital for the citizens of Lubbock County-- has become a health system we can be proud of and a great investment for Lubbock County taxpayers. Together with UMC Physicians, UMC has seen an increase in market share, demand for service, and growth in reputation. Even during difficult economic times, sound financial planning has allowed the system to thrive.

UMC's team has over 4,600 employees who serve an organization Texas Monthly has recognized as “one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas®.”

Together the medical staff, volunteers and supporters share a commitment to Service is Our Passion and establish a foundation on which to build.
