  • Employee of the Month

    Elizabeth Middleton

    Elizabeth Middleton, MS, CCC-SLP


    "Elizabeth went above and beyond to help one of her patients who was about to be evicted from his home. On two of her days off, she took this gentleman around town to help him sort his affairs, including food vouchers, help with his landlord and more."

  • Attending of the Month

    Jordan Simpson

    Jordan Simpson, MD

    Texas Tech Physicians, Orthopaedic Surgery

    “I appreciate Dr. Simpson’s timely communication and team work to provide the best care and appropriate discharge planning! After a hip surgery he advocated for one of his patients to have a sacral cushion to prevent future pressure sores. He goes above and beyond for all his patients.”

  • House Staff of the Month

    Joshua Crane

    Joshua Crane, DO

    TTUHSC, Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine

    “Dr. Crane was on the unit wanting to do a thoracentesis on a patient. While he was there, the patient’s lunch was delivered and the nurse was tending to another patient. Dr. Crane kindly assisted the patient with his food because of his limited vision.”

  • Advanced Practice Provider of the Quarter

    Shawn Reeves

    Shawn Reeves, ACPNP

    TTUHSC, Dept. of Pediatrics

    “On a Saturday, after he had already left the hospital, Shawn returned to do an ultrasound-guided peripheral IV for a pediatric patient in the EC. His kindness in returning to the EC prevented failed procedure attempts, reducing the mom’s anxiety for her child.”
