Rob Samsel, from North Texas Medical Center, SuLynn Mester, from Childress Regional Medical Center, and Melissa DeLaGarza, from Hamilton Healthcare System, have successfully completed the 2014-2015 TLMI Fellows program. As part of their fellowship, they participated in a capstone project which focused on the impact a rural hospital closure has on the community.
