It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly two months since the first COVID-19 patient was diagnosed at one of our hospitals.
Emotions rising to top for me are pride and joy: pride in our team and the way you took this challenge in stride, and joy in the number of lives saved. Our team has sent over 1,000 COVID-19 patients home to recover, and for that we should all be proud.
During this pandemic I’ve watched as our community has rallied around us, supporting our healthcare workers with encouragement and heart.
Community is where our heart is. Recently through our partnership with LSU Health Sciences and New Orleans Department of Public Health, we provided free walk-up COVID-19 testing in neighborhoods hardest hit by the virus. By bringing testing into neighborhoods, we meet our community members where they are, reaching those who may not have access to care.
We will continue to care for COVID-19 patients as the virus will be with us for some time.
With our community behind us and our team on the frontline – we are extraordinary.
