This fall, faculty and staff in some key areas of the organization will be asked to adopt new UF Health ID badges. They will serve as our public-facing introduction to patients and visitors — and each other.
A new, larger “overlay” badge will fit over current UF Health Shands ID badges or UF Gator1 ID cards, which will continue to serve as smart cards that can be swiped (for clocking in and out, building access and financial transactions).
The new IDs will display our unified brand name — UF Health — and will help clearly identify each person by his or her name and role. Guidelines for certifications and credentials will help keep the display streamlined and simple to understand.
Our goal is to improve the experience for our patients and visitors and help us present ourselves in a more consistent and clear way. The IDs will also reflect that we’re all part of the UF Health family. This is an exciting endeavor, now that we have rebranded to UF Health, have introduced new way finding and signage on our main campus and have been reinforcing behaviors from our Hospitality & Service initiative.
Phase 1 will focus on employees at UF Health Shands and UF Health Physicians, including the UF College of Medicine.
This spring and summer we focused on providing opportunities for team members to have new photos taken, and we are looking forward to distributing new badges this fall.
