Release: United Memorial Medical Center is the NYSARC Western Region Employer of the Year. Hospital President and CEO, Mark Schoell accepted the award at the 63rd Annual NYSARC Convention in Albany October 19.
UMMC was nominated by Genesee ARC, in recognition of its support of individuals with disabilities to be productive, successful employees. When the hospital had a part-time opening in its food service department, they contacted Genesee ARC’s supported work program and hired Jacob.
“When a full-time position opened up, there was no hesitation in promoting Jacob based on his performance,” Schoell said. “Jacob’s attitude and work ethic make him a tremendous asset to his department as well as our organization,” the CEO added.
Additional work opportunities for Genesee ARC include crews cleaning UMMC’s PembrokeHealthCenter site twice weekly, and picking up cardboard for recycling three times a week at UMMC’s North Street location.
