Focus on Community

Touring the clinical and non-clinical areas of UW Medical Foundation, one thing comes through loud and clear - the strong sense of teamwork. And while teamwork plays a vitally important part in all we do, recognizing the valuable contributions of individuals and teams is something we take great pride in throughout the year.


When employees and faculty leave work at the end of the day, that team spirit follows them into the community. Whether they are walking, running or biking to raise awareness for a good cause, or volunteering their time to help others, working alongside employees and faculty at UW Medical Foundation is truly inspiring.
