Hospital Week and Nurses Week 2022

During this week we celebrate all that you do in support of UCI Health’s strategic vision to improve health, increase value and transform ourselves to be the best place to give and get care. Your commitment and dedication to patients and their families truly makes a difference.

Join the fun with your colleagues and reflect on the important work you do each day with our week long event schedule.
