  • Employee of the Month

    Chad Curry

    Chad Curry, LP


    Chad and his team partnered with Trauma & Burn Services to teach a Stop the Bleed class at my husband's work and also provided them with Stop the Bleed kits and tourniquets. Later in the year, there was an accident with a machine, and the staff had to use the Stop the Bleed kits to save the man's life. Chad helped the staff mentally process the incident, and he also replaced their Stop the Bleed kits. Chad is the epitome of service is our passion.

    Dr. Burton is such a positive and lovely person to be around.  She is always going out of her way to make sure everyone is doing okay! There isn’t a day that has gone by that she hasn’t offered to get me food or a drink. I'm so glad we have had her as our resident this past month!

    Mario Aguayo is so friendly and spoken very highly of by my mother who underwent two endoscopies. Mother was nervous about the procedure and Mario calmed her nerves and put her at ease. I was pleased with the level of care given and want to thank him and UMC for doing an excellent job in caring for my family.
