“I Promise” campaign
gears up

Dr. David Guzick, senior vice president for health affairs at UF and president of the UF & Shands Health System, presents an overview of the new "I Promise" campaign at the Shands Atrium on Jan. 19.

A new initiative has officially begun across the UF Health Science Center and the hospital system aimed at improving patient care and the patient experience – human and animal.

The “I Promise” Campaign involves everyone across the academic health center, no matter what their role, and encourages them to think about how what they do impacts the people and animals we are here to serve.

This campaign will focus on everyone’s individual commitment to the patient, and commitment to our organization’s goals when it comes to quality.

In the weeks ahead, all of us at the UF CVM and UF Veterinary Hospitals will be encouraged to develop an individual “I Promise” statement and wear an “I Promise” button that reinforces our commitment to each patient, and helps us communicate our goal of excellent service and quality care to our patients and visitors.

Judy Bousquet, Mary Ring, Katherine Desmond, Genevieve Mendoza Perez and Jo Ann Winn from the UF CVM were among the guests at the "I Promise" kickoff event.

CVM Dean Glen Hoffsis and UF VP of Marketing and Public Relations Andy Fletcher chat in the Atrium.
