There to Care  

Rich Umbdenstock, AHA President and CEO

Those blue signs with the big H that dot our roadways may seem to point at buildings. In reality, they point toward people — hospital people who are always there to care for their neighbors, 24/7, even in the wake of Superstorm Sandy and its aftermath. When winds and waters made buildings unsafe, hospital people executed well-rehearsed plans to safely deliver patients to the caring hands of their colleagues at other hospitals. Hospital people are working long and hard to ensure that the care is there, even those whose own homes and families have been affected by the storm. It will take a long time for people of the Northeast to dig out from the devastation. But on each step on the road to recovery, they will be walking hand in hand with the people of America's hospitals. Well done — you make us all proud.
