It's not just a must, it's a requirement: Every UMMC employee is expected to to either wash their hands or "foam in" every time he or she enters a patient room. Ditto for when he or she leaves.

Medical Center leadership is proud to acknowledge those employees who will celebrate service anniversaries during the week of Sept. 25-Oct. 1.
Several interesting events are scheduled for the upcoming week at the Medical Center.
