A retirement party is scheduled for Kim Minino, a longtime IT analyst at UNMC and Nebraska Medicine, on Jan. 30 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the 4230 Building.

Minino started at UNMC as a telecom analyst in November 1999, during the turn-of-the-millennium Y2K hype. In her career, she has witnessed vast changes at the med center. She first worked in the Computing Services Center, which stood where the Michael F. Sorrell Center for Health Science Education is now. The staff grew from seven analysts and technicians to 15, plus five engineers. The task of printing and distributing the paper telephone directory in green binders went online.

Minino – a former Gold U and Silver U Award winner – coordinated the moves of phones out and back into Bennet Hall, Eppley Cancer Center, Eppley Science Hall and Poynter Hall during renovations. She also programmed and coordinated moves and installs of phones at the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center and both of the Durham Research Center towers, among many other IT and phone projects. Five years ago, she became a Nebraska Medicine employee with the merger of the med center’s IT departments.

Minino said she is looking forward to traveling and spending more time with her husband, children and grandchildren. She hopes to stay in touch “with some of the great friends I’ve made since working here.

“I am proud to say I worked at UNMC and Nebraska Medicine.”

    Always cheerful and willing to find a solution for any need. Her customer service consistently reflected UNMC’s values and she will be deeply missed.

    This doesn’t even begin to capture the impact Kim has had on UNMC. (If you have access, this story is a little more in-depth: https://onfirstup.com/nebraskamedicine/nebraskamedicine/contents/34803918). Anyone who has ever moved on campus knows Kim, so that’s pretty much everyone. In her 18 years at UNMC, prior to the UNMC/Nebraska Medicine IT merger, I don’t think there was anyone on campus with a grittier, more unrelenting approach to doing their job than Kim Minino. She always had the best interest of the customer in mind and looked to find solutions where others said there was none. She never waited for someone else to step in. Kim just did it. And stuck around to make sure the job was done right and was always available for follow-up.

    I wish you the best of everything in retirement!

      Hello Lisa,
      Thank you so much for your kind comments.
      The last 4 years I have been didicated to supporting the Call Center, Poison Contact Center, Pharmacy, Patient Financial Services….., at ECCP, so I haven’t been working on campus. I really missed the contact with the departments. You were the ones that kept me here for 23 years.
      I will enjoy getting to see my grandchildren more often and traveling. We are going to Mexico February 4th!
