UTHealth Affiliated Harris Health Programs

Need to Know

As we prepare to launch our LBJ Laboratory construction project, we agree to never compromise on patient safety.

If, at any time, you believe that construction should be paused because of a patient safety issue, please escalate your concern to the house supervisor. The house supervisor will contact the construction team and also brief Executive Administration on the issue.

Please contact your manager for more details. Thank you for being a patient safety champion.
