Texas Medical Center is on the fore-front of medical care and research by always seeking ways to improve itself. The center has recently appointed a new president, Giuseppe Colasurdo, M.D. to run this state of the art facility. Before this appointment Dr. Colasurado, had been serving as the Interim President since April 1, 2011. According to UT System Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa, “It is critically important to have extraordinary leadership at our health institutions as the landscape of health care in our country undergoes transformational change. Dr. Colasurdo is an exemplary educator, administrator and clinician, and I have no doubt he is the right leader at the right time.”
