November 2018 Progress Notes

I’m excited to introduce the new, all-digital version of Progress Notes, our monthly newsletter. Instead of printing and mailing Progress Notes, we will email you a link to view it right here on our site. You’ll find articles about the important happenings and terrific people of UMC…all the news that makes UMC, our hospital, the No. 1 Best Place to Work in Texas. So, why the change?

  • You are the consumer – and Progress Notes is now more accessible to you – wherever you are. The For Employees section is the 2nd most popular destination on our site, with 24,000 visitors over the past 30 days. And with 70% of page views coming from mobile devices, Progress Notes will be easy to read from your cell phone or tablet.
  • We know you’re already enjoying it online! A majority of Hidden Logo contest entries are submitted when Progress Notes is posted to the website, days before it reaches your homes.
  • An online newsletter is right in line with our strategic plan: The best use of resources (stewardship) and an opportunity to keep you informed conveniently (teamwork).

Thank you for reading Progress Notes. I hope you enjoy it. Be informed. Congratulate those awarded. And always remember Service is our Passion.

Director, UMC Marketing
