Re-badging reminder

As of mid-April, about two-thirds of Yale New Haven Hospital employees had received new photo ID badges as part of a re-badging project that is scheduled to be complete in May. Employees whose departments/units are called to visit a re-badging center for a new badge should do so as soon as possible, or they will not be able to use the new time clocks. Re-badging for employees at off-site locations will begin in the next few weeks. Re-badging for community physicians and Yale Medicine and Northeast Medical Group physicians who practice at YNHH is expected to begin in early summer. For information on re-badging, email [email protected], or call 203- 200-4343 (203-200-IDID).
