Meet Angela Zamora – empowering her team to lead in patient care.
As we count down to opening Texas Children’s Hospital – North Austin in 2024, Assistant Director of Ambulatory Services Angela Zamora and her team are preparing Austin’s growing roster of specialty clinics for their biggest milestone yet. Zamora knows our new campus will be a game-changer for the city, connecting patients with top-notch subspecialties and people who will provide the excellent patient care.
Why did you choose Texas Children’s?
Before moving to Texas Children’s Specialty Care Austin in 2019, Zamora managed outpatient clinics at our West Campus in Houston for five years.
I have been a nurse for 13 years, seven of those with Texas Children’s, and have spent my entire career in pediatrics. Texas Children’s is known for quality and compassionate care, which speaks to my core as a nurse. I wanted to join an organization with a culture and vision aligning with my own.
How do you define leadership?
To empower teams to be innovative problem-solvers, no obstacle is too big to overcome. To elevate all employees to be leaders in their own roles. To inspire others to deliver care with purpose so each patient feels valued.
What does Texas Children’s growing presence mean in Austin?
Once again, all 10 Texas Children’s subspecialties ranked in the top 10 nationally in 2023. We’re excited to bring Texas Children’s renowned quality of care to the Central Texas area. This area is rapidly growing and the patients and families need more nearby options to provide specialized care for all women and children.
What makes Austin a great place to live and work?
Austin has something for everyone. Great hiking and biking trails, live music, food trucks, sporting events and so much more. My favorite food truck is Valentina’s. Anytime we have visitors from out of town, we take them there for homemade tortillas and good BBQ.
As you look to grow and build your team in Austin, what’s top of mind?
Positivity and flexibility! Opening in February 2024, the $485 million North Austin campus will feature a 170,000-square-foot outpatient facility – connecting patients to numerous Texas Children’s subspecialties including cardiology, oncology, neurology, pulmonary medicine, GI, rheumatology, fetal care, dialysis and urology. Texas Children’s Specialty Care Austin on Mopac will also continue to house pediatric specialists across a wide spectrum of service lines.
