The Baylor St Luke’s Medical Health System is comprised of an Acute Academic Hospital that has licensure for 850 beds, three ambulatory surgical centers, three Critical Emergency Center, and the Kirby Glen Infusion Center. A strong advocate for patient safety and quality of patient care, she challenges and guides her clinical staff and residents to seek opportunities to improve areas of clinical services by promoting problem-solving skills with technology-driven activities to enrich their professional interests.
