Congratulations to Taira Meadowcroft for earning her stripes!

Part of the MU Health Care “Culture of Yes” initiative is a recognition program called Earning Your Stripes, where employees receive a coupon for embodying The Culture of Yes.

‘Care’ is about the heart, ‘deliver’ is about getting results, ‘innovate’ is about creatively overcoming obstacles and ‘serve’ is about working together for a common goal.

Taira received a “Serve” stripe in recognition of her ability to deliver timely and targeted information in support of hospital quality improvement projects. 

Comments about Taira's work:
