Resolution - Public Health Services:
Consider a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute a Medical Director Agreement, between the City of Lubbock and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, to provide the professional services of a qualified physician to act as Medical Director for the City of Lubbock Health Department.
This is a professional services provider agreement with the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC), to provide the professional services of Dr. Ron Cook to act as Medical Director for the City of Lubbock Health Department (COLHD). In the event that Dr. Cook is unable to fulfill his obligations for the term for the contract, the TTUHSC agrees to provide a suitable member of its faculty to perform the services of Medical Director for the COLHD, as set forth in this agreement.
A medical director is a physician who serves as the clinical leader of a medical facility. He/she develops and implements policies, procedures and best practices, and assures that the facility is in compliance with all federal, state and local laws. A medical director is required to be a medical doctor, with at least 10 years of professional experience and must be board-certified within his/her area of specialty.
Dr. Ron Cook will perform the following duties:
a. Supervise procedures and protocols based on federal and state regulations, and on generally accepted standards of care;
b. Approve COLHD manuals at least annually, after review and revision by COLHD clinic staff; and
c. Supervise procedures and protocols for clinical services currently provided at the City of Lubbock Health Department.
The City will pay $3,200 per month to the TTUHSC. The maximum amount paid is not to exceed $38,400 per year or $192,000 over the next five years.
