We are pleased to announce the election of Christopher J. Finnila, M.D., F.A.C.P. as Medical Clinic of Houston, L.L.P.’s latest Managing Partner, effective January 1, 2024.  Dr. Finnila takes over managing all aspects of the Clinic, following in the significant footsteps of Martin R. White, M.D. who held the position for 25 consecutive years.

Medical Clinic of Houston, L.L.P. gratefully acknowledges Dr. White for his excellent leadership these past 25 years.  In 2008-2009, Dr. White’s ground breaking accomplishment was the planning, building and relocation of the Clinic into our beautiful six-story building.  Under Dr. White’s guidance, the Clinic embraced new leading edge medical technologies to enhance patients’ care.  In 2020, he positioned the Clinic to offer new and enhanced diagnostic tools such as a high-resolution 3D™ mammography (or Tomosynthesis) which delivers a more comfortable patient experience and improves the ability of mammography to detect early breast cancers, decreasing the number of patients needing to return for additional testing. In early 2023, another first was the acquisition of an advanced 128-slice CT or “Computerized Tomography” imaging resulting in much more detailed images and increased coverage making it easier to diagnose potentially difficult-to-identify conditions as well as shorter scan times for patients.  In 2023, Dr. White capped off his distinguished leadership with the ushering in of Epic, a Clinic-wide electronic health records system, and its patient portal called “MyChart.”

Dr. Finnila is a highly accomplished physician with over 22 years of experience. Having joined MCH in August 2001, he has a proven track record of success with his participation and leadership on many Clinic committees.  In his new role as Managing Partner, Dr. Finnila will be responsible for the overall leadership and management of the Clinic, working closely with his physician partners and MCH management staff. He is a passionate advocate for patient care and is committed to providing patients with the best possible experience and the highest quality of care.

MCH is fortunate to have such capable leaders and highly skilled physicians and we look forward to continuing to work with them. Patients of both Dr. Finnila and Dr. White will be pleased to know each will continue seeing patients during established office hours.
