Critical Care Fellowship at a Glance

UMMC is one of two hospitals in the country (the other being Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle), to be named the Leapfrog top hospital of the decade. Excellence in Critical care staffing is a crucial component of the Leapfrog certification. Magnet Designation (ANCC) was achieved in 2009.
