Dr. Dynio Honrubia, the Medical Director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at DHR Health Women’s Hospital, feels satisfied and happy to have moved from Los Angeles to South Texas.
The organization where he works gives him a voice and a chair at the table to speak to the people that can help him get the job done. “All the people that can allow me to do my job efficiently have always listened to me.” He told Mega Doctor News, “They have always allowed me to improve the care of the babies.”
He emphasized that it is a unique place to work; for example, if you work at Harvard or UCLA, the infrastructure there does not lend to an individual physician coming and presenting his immediate needs to the people who can create change. “DHR has always done a great job of listening. I got to tell you, DHR does a lot of outreach but what they do within the hospital to help each patient, I believe, is even more.”
