TTUHSC and TDCJ Mourn the Loss of Robert Armstrong

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Managed Care log

Dear TTUHSC Managed Care & TDCJ Staff,

It is with a heavy heart and deep sorrow that I notify you of the passing of Mr. Robert Armstrong, NP Sanchez facility. Mr. Armstrong served as DON and Facility Health Administrator for the Sanchez unit from 1998-2002 and as our Nurse Practitioner (ACNP) from 2013 until the time of his death on June 16, 2020. “Bob” was one of the most dedicated, committed professionals that I have had the opportunity to work with, a Hero in every sense of the word. For those of you who knew him I am sure you found him to be intelligent, articulate and skilled. He had a golden service heart and was the epitome of “Beyond Service”. His dedication to Managed Care and the Sanchez facility were unparalleled and he will be sorely missed.
