UPMC | Fiscal Year 2017 Annual Report

It’s truly an amazing time to be a nurse at UPMC. We are an organization in which nurses take a leading role in patient care, innovation, and technological advancements across the enterprise. I’m pleased to share our latest accomplishments with you. In fiscal year 2017, we’ve demonstrated how much we care about our patients, each other, learning, and continually pushing the field of nursing further. We continue to support and encourage our nurses as they pursue a variety of opportunities and challenges, and as they take a vital role in UPMC’s leadership in health care. Throughout the continuum of care at UPMC, patients and their families rely on nurses. Nurses at UPMC are health care providers, communicators, teachers, clinical experts, and, most importantly, the face of UPMC when our patients need us the most. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished and am looking forward to seeing how we can lead change to transform care that will surpass our patients’ expectations in the years to come.
