  • Employee of the Month

    Alex Monje

    Alex Monje, R.N.

    Outpatient Surgery

    "Alex has quietly been assisting a very ill co-worker: he has fixed multiple things in her home, even rebuilt her carport. She does not have family close by and has lost some independence due to the lack of stamina caused by her multiple illnesses. Alex is a very generous and humble person whose service has extended past the wall of this facility!"

  • House Staff of the Month

    Holly Lewis, D.O.

    Holly Lewis, D.O.

    TTUHSC Dept. Of Family Medicine

    "Dr. Lewis played an integral role in helping a patient with suspected colon cancer. He had been trying to have a colonoscopy for 5 years but couldn’t handle prep. Dr. Lewis swooped in to save the day by suggesting a procedure through the nose. It worked, and the patient didn’t have colon cancer!"
