The UMass Memorial Medical Group Difference
UMass Memorial Medical Group is one of the largest and most experienced caregiver networks on the East Coast.
Our 1,100 medical group doctors see patients at more than 70 convenient locations in central Massachusetts. Our health care professionals are medical school faculty members, researchers and lifelong learners. Above all, they’re compassionate caregivers.
On Monday, July 29, HealthAlliance-Clinton, Leominster Campus, with the help of the Marketing and Communications team, successfully demonstrated the brand new Tele-NICU program via Facebook live. Recapped in an article published by the Sentinel & Enterprise, the Tele-NICU simulation showed how telemedicine will play a vital role in future patient care. During the simulation, Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Kristine Tingley communicated with a Worcester-based doctor to successfully exhibit collaborative care for a mock patient in the newborn intensive care unit (NICU). Javed Mannan, MD, neonatologist, also explained how telemedicine is on the rise in Massachusetts and how the benefit of video calls will enhance the care provided at hospitals that do not have Level-3 NICU centers.
Celebrating our successes and recognizing opportunities for improvement are all part of the process of becoming the best place to give care, the best place to get care. US News and World Report, a consumer-focused reporting body, released its Best Hospitals Rankings and Ratings list and our Medical Center earned a Best Regional Hospital recognition, tied for 6th place in the state, and ranked number one in Worcester. To rank the hospitals, data was analyzed from nearly 5,000 medical centers and more than 30,000 physicians' survey responses. The factors weighed include survival rates, patient safety, specialized staff and hospital reputation. This is an accomplishment our caregivers can be proud of and inspired by, as it speaks to our ongoing commitment to quality improvement.
After the tragic death of 31-year-old Amanda Dabrowski at O’Connor’s Restaurant & Bar on July 3, Jessica Griffin, PsyD, associate professor of psychiatry and pediatrics and executive director of the Child Trauma Training Center at our Medical School and Medical Center, was among the professionals interviewed for a Worcester Telegram & Gazette (T&G) article to discuss the story and domestic violence in general. Dr. Griffin provided insight and vital tips for recognizing an abusive partner. “Domestic violence occurs across all socioeconomic levels and communities,” she said. “Regardless of the circumstances, domestic violence is not the victim’s fault.” Dr. Griffin also noted that there are several misconceptions surrounding victims and reminds readers how crucial it is to understand those myths. For more information on this tragedy, or additional perspective on domestic abuse, read the full T&G article.
