About the Honoree

Robert E. Myers, MD

Dr. Myers came to Scott & White as a staff physician in 1962 and served in many capacities: Professor and Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics, Texas A&M University College of Medicine, member, President, and Lifetime Governor of the Board of Trustees of Scott & White Memorial Hospital/Scott, Sherwood, and Brindley Foundation, President of the Scott & White Clinic Staff Organization and Chairman of numerous committees. He was active in the AMA, TMA, AAP, TPS, and Bell County Medical Society.

He retired in 1998, but continued to be active in Scott & White Emeritus activities and was keenly interested in watching the McLane Children’s Hospital become a reality. For many, his most memorable roles were as exemplary leader, clinician, mentor, and teacher.

The Robert E. Myers, MD Lectureship in Pediatrics was established in 1992 by friends, colleagues, and associates, to honor Dr. Myers as one of the pioneers of Pediatric Medicine at Scott & White and throughout the state, with the goal to continue his dedication and commitment to medical education. Dr. Myers died March 28, 2014. He is survived by his wife Katherine, three children (Bob, Beth, and Jack) 8 grandchildren, and two great grandchildren.
