  • Employee of the Month

    McFatridge

    Clinton McFatridge

    Inpatient Pharmacy

    "Over the 4th of July weekend, UMC had a nurse who suffered a needle stick from a source patient who was positive for Hepatitis B. The nurse needed an immunoglobulin injection within a certain time frame, or her health could be at risk, and we did not have enough. Clint took initiative and drove all the way to Amarillo so she could receive this necessary medication."
  • Attending of the Month

    Rivas-Elizabeth

    Elizabeth Rivas, MD

    Texas Tech Physicians, Anesthesiology

    "Dr. Rivas is the best anesthesiologist because she always goes the extra mile. She did several regional nerve blocks on our post-op patients in the PACU for pain control, despite her busy operating room schedule. Patient safety is her number one priority. We just love to have her on our team!"
  • House Staff of the Month

    Gentry-Cathy

    Cathy Gentry, MD

    TTUHSC Dept. of Obstetrics & Gynecology

    "Dr. Gentry took the time to help operating room staff go over discharge instructions with a patient and son post-operation. She was able to communicate with them clearly and effectively in their primary language, so they knew exactly what to do to recover. We appreciate her willingness to help in this way!"
