We are pleased to announce UMC has been named a 2019 Guardian of Excellence Award® winner and a 2019 Pinnacle of Excellence Award® winner by Press Ganey.
The Guardian of Excellence Award recognizes top-performing health care organizations that have achieved the 95th percentile or above for performance in Employee Engagement. This is a nationally recognized symbol of achievement in health care. Presented annually, the award honors those who consistently sustained performance in the top 5% of all Press Ganey clients for each reporting period during the course of one year.
The Pinnacle of Excellence Award recognizes top-performing clients from health care organizations nationwide on the basis of extraordinary achievement and consistently high levels of excellence for at least three years in Employee Engagement and Patient Experience. This award is a highly regarded symbol of achievement and represents an important recognition from the industry’s leader in measuring, understanding, and improving the delivery of care. This is the fifth year UMC has received this recognition.
