Upcoming Employee/Student Appreciation Day

Let’s celebrate a great year!

We have seen significant improvement in patient safety indicators, grew surgical and new patient visit volumes, and we have grown outreach programs. We have everything to look forward to as Fiscal Year 2012 advances. We know the Commonwealth desperately needs the skills and capabilities we provide, and now it’s time for everyone who contributes to the success of UK HealthCare and our academic medical center to be celebrated at our annual Employee/Student Appreciation Day.

This event is for employees of UK HealthCare as well as employees and students from the six health profession colleges. The event will be celebrated Sept. 14 (night shift employees) and Sept. 15 (day shifts). Encourage every member of your team to take the time to be honored. Encourage all to attend the celebration, if only for a brief amount of time.

Richard P. Lofgren, MD, VP for Healthcare Operations & Chief Clinical Officer, UK HealthCare
