In Remembrance of Analyssa Orjuela, MD

CCMH is saddened by the loss of one of our physicians. Dr. Analyssa Orjuela unexpectedly passed away last Wednesday morning as a result of a multiple-vehicle accident.

About her life

Born on June 13, 1987, Analyssa grew up in McAllen, Texas. She also graduated from McAllen High School. She loved and excelled in many activities including music, dance, gymnastics, cheerleading and academics. However, despite her many activities, she cherished time with her family above all.

Upon graduating from high school, Analyssa attended The University of Texas – Pan American where she received her bachelor’s degree. She then attended The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas where she received her Doctor of Medicine. She completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Dr. Orjuela had a selfless spirit and passion for helping others. She was always there for her patients, siblings and friends in a time of need. Others considered her an inspiration to work hard and live a life of grace and dignity.

Her career at CCMH

After completing her residency, Dr. Orjuela relocated to Lawton to pursue her lifelong dream of practicing medicine. She was a valued member of our team for the past two years with our MMG Obstetrics and Gynecology clinic.

Dr. Orjuela meant a great deal to many of her patients. Many fondly referred to her as “Dr. O.” She always showed kindness and compassion in her practice, and it was obvious that she truly loved her profession.

Dr. Orjuela’s current patients will still be cared for by her colleagues at the OB/GYN clinic. She made a wonderful and positive impact on our staff, patients and the community. On behalf of CCMH Administration, our thoughts and prayers go out to her family, friends and colleagues.
