Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital is being honored as a long-time member of the Texas Hospital Association. The hospital was one of nine throughout the state to receive a 25-year membership award from the Association this year. The award was officially presented to the hospital’s chief executive officer, Terry Wheeler, by Della Vallejo, THA’s membership manager, during a June 2 visit to the hospital.
“Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital has joined the ranks of a special group of Texas hospitals that have achieved 25-year membership status in THA,” noted Vallejo. “This is a significant milestone, and THA thanks the hospital for its long-term support.”
