UMC Ambassador Stories: Chris Barbour, EC Nurse

Patient · Community · Each Other

Barbour,Chris_Ambassador-InnerWe recently received the following letter commending one of our nurses in the Emergency Center, Chris Barbour:

My father had a wonderful experience at UMC.  All the nurses were extremely helpful. There was one nurse who went above and beyond to be as helpful as possible with my father. His name was Chris B. He was tall with short brown hair. It was a joy to have him taking care of my father, and I would highly recommend anyone to use your hospital services, especially if Chris were available to assist them.

We want to take a moment to commend Chris and his care. This is what true ambassadors of UMC do: they care to the extreme and truly extend Service is Our Passion.

“I treat everyone like it’s their last day,” Chris said. “Most people coming into the EC are having the worst day of their life, so I just do what I can to make their day better.”

Thank you for your care, Chris!
