Thank you, Michigan Medicine

March 1, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Strategy & Leadership,


On an ongoing basis, Michigan Medicine strives to raise the bar in patient care, innovative discoveries, and our training and mentorship efforts in the national landscape of academic medicine. This is only possible because of you, our dedicated employees and trainees, who fulfill our patient care, education and research missions every day. We extend our sincerest respect and appreciation for your expertise and engagement to make Michigan Medicine the best it can be.

March is National Recognition Month and we realize that our institutional success is dependent on the dedication and commitment of all of our employees. The exceptional efforts of you and your collective teams that shape the experience of our patients and families and the Michigan Medicine broader community are invaluable.

Whether it’s inpatient or ambulatory care, community outreach, research, teaching and training, or other ancillary services, please make an effort to recognize and thank your teams and peers for their individual contributions, as well as their collective contributions, to Michigan Medicine.

Together, we can create an environment that fosters high engagement, accountability and satisfaction. Thank you for all you do, every day.
