What's Happening at UMC

  • Message from the CEO

    April showers did bring some May flowers! It is so delightful to see all the beautiful flowers popping up all over the city. Nature is truly wonderful; as an Island Girl, I am always amazed at the distinct four seasons this region affords us!

    National Nurses Week is fast approaching, May 6-12, 2024. As this may be our final Nurses Week together as a UMC family, I want to say an extra special thank you. THANK YOU to all nurses for your outstanding, and relentless dedication to our community and patients. Your compassion and empathy have made the world of difference to our patients east of the Anacostia River. Your patience and work of heart are exactly what our patients and their family need. Please continue making Team UMC proud by providing exceptional care and kindness.

    May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Please remember we cannot separate the body from the brain; each part impacts the other. Let us contribute to decreasing the stigma surrounding mental health by rallying to increase awareness about the crucial role mental health plays in our overall health and well-being. We know the pressure of relationships, family and even work can impact our mental well-being. The great thing is, we have the power to take action to improve our mental health. Do not hesitate to take care of yourself, you care for others all the time, care for you as well. As always, I encourage you to engage in self-care; and if that does not work, it is okay to seek professional help.

    Don’t forget there is the Voluntary Training offered in collaboration with the George Washington University Hospital/UHS and Department of Health Care Finance. This training will be of great value should you choose to apply for a job at the new hospital. * See attached for details.

    Finally, I wish all the Mothers on Team UMC to have a wonderful Mother’s Day when it comes despite maybe that’s your weekend to work. But that’s just a day…I am sure you are celebrated all year long by your loved one. To all staff, have a safe and fun filled Memorial Day later this month. Much appreciation for all you do.

    Humbly and Respectfully,
    Jacqueline Jacquie Payne-Borden,
    Chief Executive Officer/Chief Nurse Officer
