“This is my calling. No other job can provide me a greater reward than helping to save a life and make a person whole again.” – Felix McCoy, RN, University Medical Center Brackenridge
Felix McCoy’s career revolves around serving others. His first foray into service: three years of active duty in the army as a medic and then another two years in the National Guard. When he finished serving our country, he wanted that service to others to continue in the medical field. So he became an EMT, and then later went to nursing school.
For McCoy, nursing runs in his blood. His mother is an ER nurse. Same for three of his cousins. He started as a licensed vocational nurse (LVN) and then became a registered nurse (RN). His entire 17-year career has been at University Medical Center Brackenridge, the only adult Level I trauma center in Central Texas. UMC Brackenridge patients and staff will move to the state-of-the-art Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas May 21, 2017.
McCoy is a nurse supervisor.
