Jase Alonzo has dedicated 40 years of her life to UMC. We are so grateful for her service in our health system! Read below to learn what she loves about UMC and why she continues to work here.
Why did you choose UMC 40 years ago?
I heard from my family that it was a great place to work!
In what capacities have you worked during your time here?
I started housekeeping in the OR where my sister worked. And then I worked there for a couple of years until I got pregnant. After coming back, I worked in the laundry department for about a year. I wanted to better myself, and I saw a chance, so I went to physical therapy and worked as an aid. I really enjoyed that! After that, I saw another opportunity for myself and had an interview with Facilities Services, I've been here 38 years.
What is your favorite UMC memory?
I have a lot of favorite memories! Probably when they recognize our staff since we are in the basement and we don’t interact with patients. I am so proud of the work we do to contribute to the hospital!
What is UMC’s Best Quality?
The quality of health care that UMC gives is exceptional! Also, the directors and assistant directors get really involved. They are interested in you as a person, not just an employee. We’re all one big family. This is my family, away from home.
