  • Employee of the Month

    Mireles, Brianne

    Brianne Mireles, BSN, RN

    4 West

    During my stay on 4 West, we got news that my father and youngest brother were killed in a car accident. Bree not only stayed after hours to comfort us, she moved me to a bigger room to accommodate visitors wishing condolences and came up on her day off to bring tissues. Her heart and kindness for my family made a huge difference!

  • Physician of the Month

    Michel Diab, M.D.

    Michael Diab, MD

    Texas Tech Physicians, Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery

    Dr. Diab is the epitome of a great caregiver. One day he waited, for some time, in the lobby for a pediatric patient, who was being admitted, and their family to escort them to their room. He made a huge difference for them.

  • House Staff of the Month

    Gentry, Cathy

    Cathy Gentry, MD

    TTUHSC Dept. of Obstetrics & Gynecology

    Dr. Gentry is kind and helpful! She makes all nurses and patients feel important and heard. We appreciate all she does!
