A Message from Steve Polega, Chief Nursing Officer

Steve Polega, Chief Nursing Officer

UM Health-West is a special place to practice the art of nursing. In my 22 years as a nurse I have been blessed to work at some amazing organizations, but none of them compare
to the culture of compassion and professionalism we have here. UM Health-West staff genuinely care about each other and their patients. This is extremely evident in the hundreds of positive patient comments I receive each month and the interactions and practices I observe when rounding.

Through the challenges we have seen in 2020, I remain very hopeful and optimistic about the future of nursing at University of Michigan Health-West. My optimism
comes from what I have seen from our nursing leaders, educators, CNS team, Professional Nursing Council, teams at the bedside and others during the disruptions of dealing with a global pandemic. I have been inspired by some incredible stories and accomplishments. Nursing continues to provide the calm during the storm, serving with grace, patience and clinical excellence.

Our future is incredibly bright. Great things will continue to be done by UM Health-West. Amazing care will always be the hallmark that defines what University of Michigan Health-West means to our community.
