Now is the time for the individual entities across the system that have accomplished great things individually to evolve together to ensure our shared success and long-term sustainability. Now is the time to look to an even stronger future. Now is the time to come together as One UMMS.
One UMMS will allow us to create greater opportunities for our employees, provide more comprehensive care for our patients, and support more communities across Maryland. It will reaffirm our values and allow us to leverage the benefits of being part of a stronger, statewide system. In the end, we are not creating a new system; we are strengthening the one we have built. Together, we will honor our past and simultaneously look to our future, not just as a health care system, but as vital members of our communities.
As part of the journey to become One UMMS, we will begin to integrate and optimize how we work across our system. By creating a more consistent experience, we will emerge a more sustainable organization, built to meet the evolving needs of our patients today and for years to come.
This is a complex journey that will be phased in over many years. The details will not be dictated to you, but rather designed with and for you. With the help of representatives from different regions, departments and backgrounds throughout UMMS, we aim to create a more innovative and effective organization that leverages technological advancements and industry-wide best practices.
This initiative will require both a shift in behavior and in mindset. It will be driven by a vision for the future yet rooted in our regions’ unique cultures. It will help us make One UMMS the leading health care provider and employer in the state.
