Health Unit Coordinators Day on August 23 reminds us of the important teamwork taking place in medical facilities and why health unit coordinators are so vital and indispensable. They support the medical staff by performing a variety of roles — from checking in patients to preparing birth certificates. Without health unit coordinators, hospitals would be unable to navigate the procedural requirements of even the most basic health care tasks.
Hospitals and other health care centers are massive organizations that rely on hundreds of doctors, nurses, techs, maintenance people, facilities coordinators and administrative staff to work together efficiently so that the hospital functions like a well-oiled machine. On Health Unit Coordinators Day, remember these hard-working folks helping to keep our health needs and information on track.
