Dr. Matthew Carrick is the Site Medical Director for The Medical Center of Plano in Plano TX.
This shining account of Dr. Carrick’s character and professionalism was written by EmCare’s Acute Care Surgery CEO, Dr. John Josephs.

Matt Carrick not only exemplifies the mission of EmCare through superior physician service but embodies the characteristics of a true visionary and leader within the Acute Care Surgery organization.

One of Matt’s many demonstrations of compassion is his tremendous ability to communicate with establishing patient and family trust during difficult situations.  By demonstrating his character to patients and family, he has instilled in the nurses, fellow physicians and staff this same character which has impacted significantly the rate of organ donation at The Medical Center of Plano.  This particular element of his character and ability to collaborate with the entire medical staff has driven the Acute Care Surgery Trauma Team at The Medical Center of Plano to advance the end of life patient care management as well as impact the community and the lives of others through increasing the availability of viable organs for donation.  Through his leadership The Medical Center of Plano has become the leading facility for organ donation in the Region even though by volume they are not the highest volume or acuity facility.

Matt graciously extends his service beyond his physician-patient scope of practice to one of leadership and collaboration with the entire medical director team within Acute Care Surgery.  As Acute Care Surgery has expanded its service to institutions across the nation, Matt has been instrumental in offering a front-line perspective to other hospitals seeking trauma designation. 

He also serves as a mentor and a resource to both our seasoned professionals and our aspiring future physician leaders.
