Award Showcases Campus Dedication To A Positive, Employee-Owned Culture
Pima Medical Institute’s Albuquerque campus was recently awarded the Top Workplaces 2020 honor by The Albuquerque Journal. This award is based entirely on employee feedback, highlighting the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during these uncertain times.
The Albuquerque campus opened in 1985, and was the second overall campus for Pima Medical. Decades after opening its doors, the campus still thrives, thanks in part to the family-like atmosphere and commitment to each other.
“We take great pride in the success of our students and the well-being of our faculty and staff,” said Yuriana Lancaster, Pima Medical Institute’s Albuquerque Campus Director. “The success of our students is a direct result of the atmosphere here at the campus. To be recognized by our own faculty and staff is truly rewarding, especially as we navigate these unprecedented times.”
Pima Medical Institute’s Albuquerque campus is currently enrolling students for all programs, and has transitioned all students to a remote learning environment, until students are able to return for lab-skill competencies, in accordance with all state and county health guidelines in relation to COVID-19.
Pima Medical is an employee-owned, private accredited school, focused on educating students and preparing them to become career ready. Focused exclusively on healthcare professions including medical, dental, veterinary and nursing fields.
“Not only is employee ownership an empowering differentiator for our campuses, it’s rare in higher education,” said Fred Freedman, President and CEO, Pima Medical Institute. “Awards of this nature, driven primarily by employee response, is indicative of the alignment between employee and organizational purpose. With so much uncertainty in the world, we can be certain of one thing, and that is the faculty, staff and student dedication to Pima Medical. We are genuinely grateful that Pima Medical has so many outstanding professionals working side by side.
