Although 2011 presented a number of financial challenges to Texas and all agencies that receive state funding, UTMB’s 11,800 employees worked together to ensure the university’s financial health in order to have resources to reinvest in and advance our vital mission.

This was achieved through a multifaceted strategy to increase revenue and carefully manage expenditures throughout UTMB. In addition, multidisciplinary teams in the Health System and Business & Finance helped increase efficiency by analyzing, streamlining and improving day-to-day processes. The 16 projects completed thus far have reduced waste and costs, increased value for those we serve and improved employee satisfaction. Additional projects are on tap for the coming year.

The result of all of these efforts is an increasingly resilient university and regional health care resource.
