Caring for Our Health Care Heroes During COVID-19

During this national health crisis, hospitals and health systems are doing everything they can to care for their patients and communities, and that extends to our health care heroes serving on the front lines — physicians, nurses and the entire health care team, including food services, environmental services, administrative, EMS and support staff. Even in normal circumstances, working in health care delivery is hard, stressful and tiring work; COVID-19 makes it especially exhausting physically and mentally. See the resource below for ways hospitals and health systems are helping care for and support our health care heroes.
