UMMC Culture and Involvement
These are just a few ways to be a part of the UMMC community.
UMMC has a multidisciplinary Green Team that keeps our Medical Center an award winning, more environmentally sustainable place to provide patient care. Contact: Justin Graves, Sustainability Coordinator.
C2X: Commitment to Excellence
UMMC staff live by our Commitment to Excellence standards, and we look forward to UMMC's C2X forums (town meetings) that are held with senior leadership. Be sure to attend the C2X Forums, sign up to be a liaison for your unit, or join one of the many C2X Teams, including Patient Experience, Celebrations, Employee Engagement, Healing Arts, and Communications. Contact: Kerry Sobol, Director.
Nursing & Patient Care Services Governance Councils
UMMC's Nursing & PCS Governance Councils coordinate the decision making process related to clinical practice, staff and patient education and patient care. The 10 councils and 15 subgroups include representation from many departments including Pharmacy and Information Technology, in addition to every nursing unit. Manager approval required prior to involvement with these councils. Contact: Tia Milburn, Project Specialist.
Unit Level Councils
Every division and unit has unique needs and committees. Ask your manager about getting involved at the unit level.
UMMC plans a number of events, from holiday parties to award celebrations. Be sure to ask your manager about these activities through out the year.
Nurses Week coincides with the birthday of Florence Nightingale and is celebrated annually at UMMC. You can be involved planning and attending these events that honor nurses.
Mind and Body
Keep your eyes peeled for the many conferences and workshops that are offered year round in your unit or department.
