"The Texas Medical Center is the largest medical center in the world and provided me the opportunity to be immersed in one of the most unique, competitive and innovative healthcare markets."
"U.S. News and World Report recently published their annual survey of America’s Best Hospitals. Not only did SLMC rank among the top 50 hospitals in 10 specialties of care, but all six of the ranked specialties took significant leaps up the list from previous years providing evidence supporting the impact the current leadership has had on improving the organization as a whole."
"Initially I was intimidated by the thought of becoming a Texan, but within the week I moved, here Houston drew me in with its diversity and beautiful landscape. Houston quickly became a city that I could see myself living in for many years. Its diversity ranges from a great outdoor life to wonderful urban draw with one- of-a-kind restaurants on every corner. When people say Houston has something for everyone, they are undoubtedly right."
"One of the things I respect most about SLHS is that the national awards and recognition they’ve received have been a direct result of their outstanding commitment to setting the standard for patient care. In addition, the standard is one that extends throughout the entire system, where measurements and improvements are focused on patient, community, and hospital needs far beyond just the typical measurements that are publicly reported."
