Powerful Images Spotlight the Sacrifices of Health Care Heroes During COVID-19

As 2020 comes to a close and COVID-19 cases spike upward again across the U.S., front-line and support staff at hospitals and health systems continue to tirelessly battle the virus. They are caring for patients and families and maintaining a safe health care environment, while still overcoming challenges in looking after themselves and their loved ones.

To help its community see the incredible work and sacrifice of its employees during the pandemic, Kootenai Health, a regional medical center based in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, took photographs of its COVID-19 isolation unit and used the powerful images to create an inspiring “thank you, heroes” video.

In the health care organization’s words:

“This year has been incredibly challenging. We want to take a moment and want to thank every single employee for their commitment and dedication to our patients, our organization and our community. To our incredible caregivers and support staff — we cannot fully express our gratitude for your continued heroism.”
