JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas –
It can be a balancing act, but senior leaders at Brooke Army Medical Center make it a priority to carve out time for clinical care.
When asked why they do it, their responses share a common theme: “It’s all about the patients.”
“We have to have an attitude in the command suite just like everywhere else in the hospital that patient care comes first,” said Air Force Col. Heather Yun, deputy commander for medical services and an internal medicine and infectious disease physician. “I put clinical time on the calendar first and then work everything else around it.”
