Employees who have reached 30, 35, 40, 45, 50 and 55 years of service have been recognized; 134 of the winners were Michigan Medicine employees.

This year’s ceremony took place at the Jack Roth Stadium Club.

Dee Hunt, Michigan Medicine’s director of human resources, and Rich Holcomb, Jr., UM’s associate vice president for human resources, spoke at the event and commented on the remarkable achievement of each of the honorees. .

Hunt and Holcomb recounted the many changes UM has gone through over the past 55 years and told attendees how significant their decades of contributions have been.

“Long-serving employees shape our organization and we are very grateful for your service,” Hunt said.

Holcomb and Hunt also paid tribute to the spouses, partners, family members and friends who have long supported the winners.

“We don’t come here alone and we appreciate your supporting our employees,” Holcomb said.

Hunt added, “Part of my role is to recruit and find talented people to work at Michigan Medicine. I can tell you that kind of longevity is out of fashion.
