Heroes, right here.
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, from all walks of life, and are right here in our communities, tackling one of the greatest challenges modern healthcare has ever faced.
The phlebotomist who, after a long shift at the hospital, spends her free time cooking and delivering hot meals to seniors and truck drivers. A physical therapy assistant plucked from her normal duties and redeployed to screen her friends and neighbors in a tent outside the ER. The environmental services workers who sanitize, disinfect and deep-clean our hospitals and clinics, putting their own health at risk in the process.
We’re surrounded every day by heroes.
In honor of those working tirelessly to get us through the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re sharing the stories of our heroes and the incredible work they do.
