MARCIA RHODES

Director, Health Sciences and UW Medicine Risk Management
Manager, UW Medicine Coordinated Quality Improvement Program Plan

Ms. Rhodes has worked for UW Medicine for nearly 20 years, advancing the clinical risk management efforts, quality, safety and patient-centeredness of healthcare at UW Medicine. Her nominations included repeated references to her integrity, professionalism, thoughtfulness, openness and her desire, always, to do the right thing. “No one wins in litigation, regardless of the financial outcome,” says Ms. Rhodes. “At UW Medicine, we take a different tack — we work together to learn from our mistakes. It’s a better outcome for our patients and for all of us, too.”
