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. Read, watch and listen to their stories.

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.

Whether you’re locked down in a self-quarantine, you’re directly caring for friends and family or you’re out there on the front lines screening and educating our communities — we’re all connected at this moment in history. Together, we move through these unsettling and unprecedented times — and together, we will come out stronger on the other side.

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. 
Here are a few — among the countless we’re surrounded by — who work endlessly inside and outside our hospitals’ walls bringing hope and better health to our communities. Each and every day.
