Utah Navajo Health System held its annual staff retreat last Thursday at the scenic Blue Mountain Guest Ranch.
The day started with a walk/run race and breakfast for all employees. UNHS CEO Michael Jensen then welcomed everyone to the retreat, telling them this was the one day of the year they could just have fun.
“It’s a chance to see people you haven’t seen for a long time and have a stress-free day,” Jensen said.
He also told employees that UNHS is doing, “very, very well.” He said the organization is one of the fastest growing medical groups in the country and one of the most profitable Federally Qualified Health Centers in the nation. He congratulated all employees for their hard work and said UNHS is only as good as its staff.
Perry Robinson, Traditional Consultant for UNHS, and Navajo Medicine Man, offered a song and a prayer to start the day. Employees then broke into groups and rotated between five different training activities, including such things as IT Security, Safety and Flu Shots and Infection Control.
There were also several UNHS venders on hand and employees of Blue Mountain Hospital to help with the cooking and with blood draws for the biometric screening for employees in the Go365™® fitness program. Thanks for your help.
The UNHS annual retreat is educational and fun with games and activities, along with a lot of great food. It’s always a fun day.
