Our Business and Finance team consists of approximately 1,200 women and men who provide
“behind-the-scenes” support for UTMB’s health system, educational programs and research enterprise.
We are the people who hire and train staff, process invoices and build budgets, renovate and
repair facilities, build and clean our hospitals and clinics, keep computers running, provide
hot meals to patients and employees, advertise our programs and services, pay our employees and
our vendors…basically, all of the support functions that keep UTMB running.
We developed this website for a number of reasons. First, the satisfaction surveys we conducted in
December 2009 indicated our customers wanted greater accessibility, better communication and improved
responsiveness. This new site is the first in a series of actions we’ll be implementing to respond
to customer needs and improve our services in each of our areas.
Second, we are proud of the work we do and of our people who work hard to support UTMB’s goals.
We want you to know who we are and what we do. We hope this site will make it easier for you to find,
access and understand Business and Finance operations.
Since we welcome input on how to continuously improve, this website will also be a work in progress
that will evolve and expand over time to meet the needs of the diverse communities we serve.
Whether you are a patient, faculty member, student, alumni, vendor or colleague,
we are pleased to be of service to you.
Thanks for your support.
