UMC Health System

About us:

UMC Health System is comprised of over 4,600 team members who have made our organization “One of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas®” by Texas Monthly. 

Together with medical staff, volunteers and leadership, we share a strong commitment to our patients, one that defines our culture, Service is our Passion.  

More than a name, Service is Our Passion sets UMC apart in Lubbock and throughout the region. Beyond a commitment, it is our “why” at UMC as we care for you and your loved ones. 

No doubt there are many hospitals in our region you may choose for your care, each with fine doctors and cutting-edge technology. Why select UMC? Because we are teaching the leaders of tomorrow while offering a culture of service today. At UMC we believe our “why” is making a world of difference.

Gratefully, we have never served more patients than we do now with 495 beds. As a result, we are expanding to accomplish our mission – to every patient, every time. We appreciate your trust and we look forward to showing you Service is our Passion.
