"The Doctor is In" presented by El Paso First Health Plans and Texas Tech Health Sciences Center and hosted by University Medical Center Foundation set the stage for an award for exemplary service and dedication to be presented to Dr. Alan Tyroch, Director of Trauma at UMC of El Paso. 

“From the county hospital, to Thomason to University Medical Center of today, our campus has seen a complete transformation,” said Dennece Knight, Executive Director of UMC Foundation. “We looked for a recipient whose services have had an impact on that transformation.”

Dr. Tyroch received his education at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in Houston, a General Surgery Internship at Baylor, a General Surgery residency in Phoenix and a Trauma Surgical Critical Care Fellowship at the University of California. He has been with UMC since 1997 and was key for UMC to obtain a Level 2 Trauma certification and then a Level 1 Trauma certification. University Medical Center is the only hospital in a 270 mile radius to have this kind of certification.

Congratulations Dr. Tyroch!
