An EVS appreciation contest

Let’s have a little contest in recognition of this week as National Healthcare Environmental Services Week.

Comment on this story with the full name of your favorite medical center EVS worker along with a few words about how great he or she is.

The EVS worker who generates the most comments — or “votes” — gets a $30 gift card to Crave in Midtown Crossing.

You can vote:

  • For more than one EVS worker; but
  • Only once for each EVS worker.

The “polls” close today at 5 p.m.

    UNeMed works not only with University employees, but also has visitor from around the United States and the World at large, and the cleanliness and appearance or our facilities in Annex 14 are a great asset to creating a positive opportunity to promote UNMC technologies. Tami Ballenger is a critical part in allowing all of us at UNeMed to focus on what we do, and know that we can invite anyone to our office with confidence that the office space will be clean and inviting for all of our guests.
