When someone is in the ICU and unable to have visitors, that’s a worry to family members who’d prefer that visitation. For ICU patients in the Samaritan’s Purse field hospital on the Medical Center campus, though, there’s a way to make visits happen. Loved ones can lay eyes on their patients through a telehealth connection offered through UMMC’s Center for Telehealth.
With the new state-of-the-art surgical suites inside the Kathy and Joe Sanderson Tower, surgeons in more than 10 specialties provide advanced care to children at the state’s only pediatric hospital. Hoppe also heads the pediatric craniofacial plastic surgery team at UMMC.
It’s not just measles, mumps and rubella: pediatricians recommend junior high students receive vaccines that help prevent HPV, meningitis, and this year, COVID-19. UMMC experts say the best source for information is your doctor.
Medical Center faculty and staff often are recognized regionally, nationally and internationally for their academic or medical achievements. These accolades place UMMC among health science centers worldwide.
Several interesting events are scheduled for the upcoming week at the Medical Center.
Medical Center leadership is proud to acknowledge those employees who will celebrate service anniversaries during the week of Aug. 2-8.
