The MIND Center experts are combining research, brain imaging and genetic technologies to make discoveries about Alzheimer's disease and dementia. On June 21, they’ll discuss their work during the ongoing “Mind Matters” educational series for patients and caregiver families. The program coincides with “The Longest Day,” an annual observance that honors those affected by the devastating diseases.
When it comes to its average cost per day of a patient’s care, UMMC has one of the lowest cost structures among the nation’s academic medical centers. It’s the result of making sure patients are getting the right level of care at the right time, and getting them back home at the right time. Medical Center leaders accomplish that through teamwork and creative use of limited resources.
