We Are In This Together
As we adjust to life during the COVID-19 pandemic, our organization continues to take urgent steps to protect the health of our patients, providers, employees, and the community we serve. The rapid spread of the virus across the world and at home has forced us to change our day-to-day lives and work processes at breakneck speed, reminding us how closely connected we are to each other.
So much change in such a short time period often causes us to feel stressed and overwhelmed by the circumstances surrounding us. But, in these times of uncertainty, we also gain a deeper understanding of our shared humanity.
Life is unpredictable – at times frightening – but it can inspire kindness, connection, and a desire to come together for the greater good. Though we would not choose for our community to face crisis situations, when we do, they can bring unexpected gifts - a renewed value and affection for the people and places we love.
It’s when we face the toughest times that our true nature reveals itself: we are in this together.
