Consistent with MidMichigan Health’s Professional Practice Model, Surgical Services places our patients and families at the center of our care. All staff, RN’s, Scrub Techs, CRNA’s, Physicians, Sterile Processing Techs, Secretarial, and other ancillary departments, work together to provide our patients and families excellent care. As we provide excellent care, we do so with safety, efficiency, professional, and evidence based practices in mind.

Staff enhances their skills and knowledge through yearly competency training, skills fair, and hospital training models. Professional development is available through formal advancement programs such as REACH program, MY LEAD, specialty certifications, etc. Process improvement is integrated within our UPC (Unit Practice Council).

Unit orientation is conducted through mentoring and preceptors, where new staff members are provided a guided orientation and take an average of 3 to 4 months to complete. Staff is often cross-trained to work in several areas within the unit.
