By the time this issue of Impact hits newsstands, UTMB will have safely transferred 185 patients from adult medical, surgical and intensive care units in John Sealy Hospital to their new rooms in Jennie Sealy Hospital. We have for many years looked forward to the day when Jennie Sealy would be open to patients, and we can now look forward to serving patients and their families there well into the future. You can read more about the hospital on page 11.

But we aren’t done growing. Our hospital and emergency department on the League City Campus are set to open in early June. Check iUTMB for information on the May 3 ribbon-cutting ceremony and tours of this newest UTMB inpatient facility.

In the meantime, this issue is full of stories about how our people are advancing our mission. Among them:

  • A day in the life of UTMB’s archivist, Bobby Marlin
  • A profile of Katrina Lambrecht, vice president and administrator of our
    Angleton Danbury Campus
  • The students who are helping make a difference at St. Vincent’s Clinic
  • GSBS student Chris Roundy and his backyard mosquito traps that are part of the fight against infectious diseases
  • UTMB Police Canine Officer Wesley Braunsdorf and his four-legged partner, Noey
  • A nurse and soon-to-be UTMB School of Medicine alumna who’s celebrating Match Day results
  • An overview of parking changes and a reminder to WEAR your badge for workplace security
  • In the spirit of Earth Day, tips to “go green” by Ken Steblein
  • Numerous accomplishments and kudos in the Working Wonders column and
    throughout the newsletter

Enjoy the articles, and be proud of all you make possible for those we serve. Thank you!

Dr. David L. Callender
UTMB President
