    • Did you know ... the UMMC Alliance has been in existence since the University of Mississippi Medical Center opened in 1955 and has been the major contributor of the patient needs fund, which helps patients in UMMC hospitals and clinics.
    • Did you know ... the UMMC Alliance provides $500 a year to our in-house vent patients for outings. These special patients who live in the Batson Children's Hospital are treated to picnics, Braves baseball games, the Jackson Zoo and the Christmas light display in Canton, just to name a few. It takes a special UMMC team to care for these patients and the Alliance is thrilled to provide the funds for these trips.
    • Did you know ... the UMMC Alliance spent $7,000 for a total body arc trainer to be used by the students in the student wellness center. And, recently spent $7,072 to provide furniture in the school of health related professions enabling students to sit comfortably, study, discuss class or just visit with other students.
    • Did you know ... the UMMC Alliance provided approximately $2,000 towards gifts to celebrate the winners of the "Weight Loss Challenge for 2008."

And, another $8,600 was spent on the small consultation room located next to the SICU waiting area for clinical situations requiring complete privacy for families.
