Month of Miracles is an exciting fundraising event for UMC Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) to be held during the month of August. Local businesses will fundraise the entire month and all donations will directly benefit UMC Children’s Hospital and CMN.
On June 1, UMC hosted the very first Veteran Advisory Council. Lead by Tim Howell, UMC Senior Vice President of Patient Care Services, the Veteran Advisory Council, much like the Patient Advisory Council, investigates how we as a healthcare system can improve care of our veterans with help from the Veteran Affairs Clinic. After attending a similar council in 2018, Howell decided to bring the idea to life at UMC, so that veterans had a place to ask questions about their healthcare while also bringing forward issues they face when it comes to healthcare.
Our EMS providers are courageous UMC heroes who sacrifice themselves to serve our community! That’s why when an EMS provider passes away, UMC shows them honor and recognition in the EMS Hall of Honor.
Our adult intensive care unit advanced practice providers work hard to care for patients who are in the most critical condition. They work in our multiple adult ICUs including: Department of Surgery, Medical ICU (MICU), Anesthesia ICU, Neuro ICU, and cardiothoracic surgery/cardiovascular ICU. They stepped up during the pandemic and continue to give our community the best care possible!
