- With continued community support, we will carry out our ambitious mission to serve East Texas and beyond through excellent patient care and community health, comprehensive education, and innovative research.
Welcome to UT Health Northeast’s web site. We’re pleased that you’re here and hope you will find the information you’re looking for about our institution.
As the only UT health institution located in a rural sector of Texas, UT Health Northeast is focused on initiatives dealing with rural health care, which includes aging issues and care for seniors, a fast-growing segment of our East Texas population.
One way we demonstrate our concern for our senior patients is with free valet parking at our Riter Center for Advanced Medicine, where our courteous and friendly valet personnel will park your car and return it to you when you’re ready to leave. This feature has become especially popular with our senior citizens and other patients who may be challenged by disabilities.
In addition to our 109-bed hospital, we offer a large number of clinical services all under one roof. Primary care services, approximately 30 specialties, and six Centers of Excellence comprise the wide-ranging health care UT Health Northeast provides.
Partnerships with the following physicians’ groups complete our comprehensive approach to health care for all ages: Azalea Orthopedic Services, NeuroRestorative® Services for neurological rehabilitation, Trinity Clinic Vascular Surgery, and Trinity Clinic Urology.
With an annual operating budget of $125 million, we are proud to contribute more than $287 million each year to the East Texas economy. In Fiscal Year 2009, biomedical research at UT Health Northeast had an economic impact of $33.5 million on the region.
I am confident this is only the beginning of a very bright future for UT Health Northeast. With continued community support, we will carry out our ambitious mission to serve East Texas and beyond through excellent patient care and community health, comprehensive education, and innovative research.
Kirk A. Calhoun, M.D.
