“What is best for the patient?”

Former Foundation Chairman William T. Solomon has made lasting contributions in partnership with his wife, Gay Solomon, to advance medicine and inspire progress for more than three decades. The Solomons have been a leading force in the Dallas community. In 2000, during the Innovations in Medicine campaign at UT Southwestern, Mr. Solomon served as campaign chair and helped identify a need and champion the launch of the Clinical Services Initiative — an approach that promoted more patient-centric clinical service through highly trained staff, enhanced accessibility, online access for patients to their medical records, and improved communication and record keeping.
