"Sam has had much success at CTMC for the past five years leading out in initiatives to advance robotic services and interventional cardiology, while also significantly improving quality and patient experience," said Ken Finch, president and CEO of the Adventist Health System Southwest Region and Board Chairman at CTMC. “While change is always difficult, I know that the team at CTMC is strong and will continue to serve the community of San Marcos by living our mission to extend the healing ministry of Christ.”
