More than 3,000 MCHS employees participate in the standardized uniform initiative
(PRWEB) November 22, 2016
Uniform Advantage (UA), partners with Miami Children’s Health System (MCHS) to design a custom print and standardize uniform colors by job function. The uniform showcases the new branding of the health system’s flagship facility, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, and its network of outpatient centers.
UA worked with MCHS to launch the health system’s first standardized uniform program, which was implemented at all system facilities, including the 289-bed Nicklaus Children’s main campus and nine outpatient centers, extending from southern Miami-Dade County to Palm Beach County.
As a result of the organization’s commitment to providing its staff as much variety as possible, the program features a one-of-a-kind printed scrub top design. UA’s in-house design team presented the concept of incorporating the new Nicklaus Children’s logo design elements in a custom print that could be worn by all clinical departments. The printed scrub top features hearts in each of UA’s classic color selections assigned to a department under the new uniform program. The flexible print design allows each team the option of the print top with a solid pant, or a solid top and solid pant. The “You’ve Got Heart” top is sold exclusively to Nicklaus Children’s employees.
As of July 11, 2016 more than 3,000 MCHS employees participated in the standardized uniform initiative. The uniform program is supported by UA with a custom web portal where employees can go online, select a department, and view available uniform options. Employees are also able to shop at one of UA’s 9 South Florida retail locations where additional services include free ship-to-store orders and payroll deduction.
Every month, UA features an extraordinary healthcare professional as the Scrub Superstar of the month on their blog and social sites. October’s Scrub Superstar of the month, Shamira works as a Registered Nurse at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.
