Meet Kinzey Wilson, Facility Health Administrator, Managed Care

How long have you worked at TTUHSC, and what is your role?
I have worked with TTUHSC Managed Care for five years. I am the Facility Health Administrator over the Mechler and Neal Units.

How did you come to work at TTUHSC? Can you tell us about your career journey to (or within) our institution?
I was a stay-at-home mother for six years; the time had come for me to find work outside the home. I applied for some open positions at TTUHSC, but it was not until I interviewed that I realized this position was ­­at a correctional facility. I was hired on as a Correctional Business Assistant. I worked there for three years before being promoted to Patient Services Supervisor. I worked in that position for about six months before being promoted to my current role. 

What do you enjoy about your work, or what excites you most about your job?
What excites me most about my job is that every day is a new adventure. Working with the inmate population gives you a different experience.

Which of the values (One Team, Kindhearted, Integrity, Visionary, and Beyond Service) is most integral to your job or team? Why?
I believe One Team and Beyond Service are both essential in Managed Care. We all cover and help each other to ensure that work is completed, every day. I consider the One Team value to be the most vital part of Managed Care because we have to work with one another and security to make sure our patients’ needs are met while keeping each other safe.

How would you describe the culture at TTUHSC?
I believe it is very energetic and always looking for new ways to be innovative.  

What do you enjoy most about Amarillo, and what makes you proud to call West Texas home?
I love Amarillo, Texas. It is still a small town, but it’s big enough to have some great options, and always leads you to meet new people. The friendliness and togetherness make me proud to call West Texas home.

What do you wish more people knew about your team or department, or our institution?
Managed Care is growing and continuously working to find effective ways to serve the inmate population. We may be just one part of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center family, but we serve a large population.

What most excites you about the future at TTUHSC?
I love seeing how much it is growing–not just here in Amarillo but across Texas. It is very exciting to see what TTUHSC brings to Amarillo and the possibilities to come.

What would you tell people who are considering a position at TTUHSC?

This is a great place to work with amazing benefits. TTUHSC offers the chance to advance and move around many departments to find your best fit.

Is there anything else you would like to share?
I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the TTUHSC team! I look forward to being a part of what the future holds for Managed Care!
