2020 UMC Employee Banquet

2020-UMC Employee Banquet-Announcement Rev


  • Employee of the Month

    DeeDee Zimmerman

    DeeDee Zimmerman

    EVS, Linen Services

    "DeeDee went above and beyond by helping a little girl and her mom in the hallway as she was passing by. The girl complained of chest pain and dizziness, so DeeDee ran to the front of the hospital to get the little girl a wheelchair and on her way back asked two nurses for help. The girl was taken to the ER and several hours later she was taken to the OR. Because DeeDee took time out of her day to check on someone passing her in the hallway and acted quickly, this little girl got the help she needed."
