Employee of the Month
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Ethan volunteered to help a patient and his mother navigate using adaptive controllers for Xbox One, as the patient’s goal was to be able to play video games. Ethan took the controllers home to figure them out and went to Best Buy to ask for advice. After research and hard work, Ethan and the patient were able to play video games together! We are grateful for his compassion.
Resident Physician of the Month
Ronald Banister, MD
Texas Tech Physicians, Anesthesiology
Dr. Banister’s care leaves the greatest impact on people: on patients, on families and on those of us who work with him. We appreciate him, his kindness and the service he provides for our community at UMC.
House Staff of the Month
Sara Shank, MD
TTUHSC Dept. of Pediatrics
Dr. Shank does much more than just see children in clinic. She does things like organize an art day for a Texas Tech children’s clinic and co-organizing a foster kids night at church. Her dedication helps children see they are far more than a patient. That’s true care.
