December 30, 2015 | UT Health



University of Toledo Medical Center leaders are inviting all faculty, staff, students and volunteers to its New Year Appreciation Day celebration Tuesday, Jan. 5, in the Four Seasons Bistro atrium.

Breakfast will be served for first- and third-shift UTMC employees from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m., and dinner will be served for second-shift UTMC employees from 4 to 6 p.m.

“As the New Year begins, we choose to remind our faculty, staff, students and volunteers that their efforts to provide our patients with quality care and an exceptional health-care experience do not go unnoticed,” UTMC CEO David Morlock said. “It is important to take time during these busy days to express our gratitude and thanks.”

The event will mark the celebration of last year’s achievements while looking forward to accomplishing goals in 2016, he added.

In 2015, UTMC received a variety of awards, including outstanding achievement when it comes to cancer treatment, as well as recognition of its superior stroke patient care for the 10th year in a row.

U.S. News & World Report named UTMC as one of the Most Connected Hospitals in the country for its digital prowess in patient safety and engagement.

UT Health also opened a new family medicine center and broke ground on the Rehabilitation Hospital of Northwest Ohio.
