The Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) is committed to providing a secure and safe environment for its faculty, staff, students, and visitors.

Individual safety within the GUMC community is a priority and we are taking steps to improve and enhance security at the medical center.

Developing and maintaining a safer campus requires a community-wide approach focused on minimizing risks to individuals and campus facilities. Through this approach, every GUMC community member can contribute to our mission of excellence in research, education, and the improvement of human health and well-being.

In early 2012, the GUMC Security Work Team was established to address the Medical Center’s current and future security needs. The work team included members of the main and medical center campuses, including, faculty, staff, students, information technology experts, facilities, housekeeping, and public safety. Many of the recommendations are being “fast-tracked” and focus on building a responsible, security-conscious culture on our campus.
