In August, managers began distributing new UF Health ID badge overlays to be worn over our existing IDs. These are for UF Health core service staff, UF Health Shands employees and UF College of Medicine faculty and staff in Gainesville.
The new overlay will fit over your current UF Health Shands ID or UF Gator1 ID card, which will continue to serve as smart cards swiped for clocking in and out, building access and financial transactions. So please keep your current ID, ID holder and access fob — you’ll still need those.
The new IDs display the UF Health logo and help clearly identify each person by name and role. This approach will benefit our patients, visitors and customers and give us a unified look.
These overlays are mandatory, and must be worn on your lapel/at your shoulder facing out so your information is clearly displayed.
Although photo sessions are closed, employees who did not take a new picture will have a copy of their current badge photo on their overlay. Newly hired faculty and staff will receive a new ID badge overlay at the same time as other staff during this distribution process.
