Chair’s Corner

We are delighted to announce that William C. Eward, MD, DVM, has been appointed Orthopaedic Residency Program Director.

As we celebrate PRIDE Month, we recognize the diversity, strength, and resilience of the LGBTQ+ community. In orthopaedics, physical therapy, and occupational therapy, we are committed to fostering an environment of inclusivity and acceptance for our providers, staff, and patients.

Tomorrow is Juneteenth, commemorating the day in 1865 when Major General Gordon Granger declared the end of slavery in Texas, months after it was legally abolished.

While this day marks the unofficial start of summer and is often seen as a time for relaxation, let's take a moment to reflect on its deeper meaning. Memorial Day honors those who have perished while serving in our military.
