José L. Díaz-Gómez, MD, FASE, FCCM, rides his bicycle to work every day in Houston, Texas. He passes the Texas Medical Center, where he sees a large Ukrainian flag on one of the hospital buildings. The flag symbolizes support for Ukraine in its ongoing war with Russia, and now when Dr. Díaz-Gómez passes it, he sees something more. He sees courage, responsibility, and hope.
Dr. Díaz-Gómez is the medical director of cardiothoracic, mechanical circulatory support, and transplant critical care and director of critical care echocardiography at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center. He is the physician leader for a Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) mission to support hospitals and health systems impacted by the war in Ukraine. The mission is designed to improve the medical knowledge, confidence, and skill levels of Ukrainian clinicians using ultrasound equipment to save patients’ lives. SCCM will donate 80 handheld ultrasound units to healthcare facilities in Ukraine and will provide the necessary training.
