At UC Davis Health , we ’ re proud to continue playing a vital role in the health of our shared Sacramento region — no matter how trying the circumstances . The secret is in our people .
Day in and day out , our dedicated care providers and support staff are still working as hard as ever to fight the coronavirus pandemic . They ’ re also delivering crucial care expertise , research into lifesaving new treatments , and educating tomorrow ’ s health professionals .
Our teams have performed at the very highest levels throughout this pandemic . They ’ ve treated both severe and chronic COVID-19 ; vaccinated and tested thousands of our neighbors ; and provided the latest evidence-based advice about how to navigate the pandemic , as safely as possible .
Academic medicine doesn ’ t stop for a pandemic
Along the way , they ’ ve also upheld the regionally distinctive services that we provide as a leading academic health system — such as our area ’ s only level I trauma center , its only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center , our internationally known neurodevelopmental institute , and more .
And they ’ ve stayed engaged in health in other ways , directing time and resources to youth groups , sports , arts and culture , and other threads of our community ’ s overall fabric and well-being .
So please join us in thanking them all — the specialtycertified nurses , the infectious disease specialists , the environmental services staff , our Patient Relations team , and thousands more — for their efforts on our behalf .
And as always , thank YOU , our community , for your confidence , your trust , and your own persistence in the face of adversity .
