Senior Care & Services

The UMC Seniors Are Special Program focuses on unique ways we can support seniors and their health care needs that go beyond regular clinical services. We offer a variety of services that include education, wellness and recreational activities.

UMC Health System believes that the seniors in our community are important and should be very well taken care of.

UMC and the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center have teamed up to help those 60 years old and better save on hospital and healthcare expenses. Seniors Are Special is a plan that costs nothing to join. It adds nothing to the cost of healthcare, and it saves time and worry while providing the special care that our members deserve.
