26 Aug Let’s Celebrate Health Unit Coordinator Week!
This week, August 23 through August 29 is dedicated to recognizing the role of health unit coordinators. Whether you are a health unit coordinator, know someone who is, or are interested in working as one, help us in celebrating this week!
A health unit coordinator is a vital role of any nursing unit, coordinating and communicating between staff and patients and controlling the organization of a health unit. This position found at hospital, long-term care facilities, medical clinics, rehab centers and public health centers can vary greatly depending on the unit and the needs of the unit. Health unit coordinators become skilled in many aspects of the healthcare team and ensuring that the unit runs smoothly. As medical facilities continue to grow and advance, health unit coordinators are a vital position to ensuring patient care and quality of care is given. Take this week to recognize and thank health unit coordinators for all they do! Consider a Thank You note, a short thankful email, a small gift of appreciation or a homemade gift that can demonstrate what they mean to you and your work.
