  • Message From the Executive Leadership Team

    Happy New Year All,

    Although the year 2022 rolled in rough bringing with it the highest number of COVID-19 cases the District and UMC have seen since the beginning of the pandemic and a snowstorm that left many of our colleagues and patients stranded; we made it through week one!

    In fact, UMC, which began as Morris Cafritz Memorial Hospital has been making it through since 1966 despite several name, leadership, and funding challenges, due to our resilient dedicated team of healthcare professionals.  Our commitment to you, is that not only will we make it through 2022, but together we will thrive until 2025 or until such time that a new hospital facility opens on the St. Elizabeth’s campus.
