A Caring Commitment to Our Community
April 20, 2018
Last weekend, our community experienced an historic blizzard that resulted in school and business closures, event cancellations and residents staying home to weather out the storm. But in the healthcare business, closing isn’t an option – hospitals and medical providers make a commitment to be accessible no matter the hour or the weather – for the sake of our community.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to all the Huron Regional Medical Center staff and medical providers who braved the cold, snow and wind to show up at the hospital, and in many cases, stay overnight, to make sure any member of our community who needed care got it.
More than 70 dedicated team members left their homes and families to care for our citizens and their families – and for that I am very grateful! Whether it was nursing, lab, X-ray or surgical staff or the support staff caring for their coworkers, each and every one sacrificed to help us care for our community.
I’d also like to thank the Huron Ambulance Service and members of the community who helped to transport patients even though no travel was advised. Thanks also to the HRMC maintenance crew who picked up staff from their homes and brought them to work and kept the entrances of the hospital cleared. And, no one would have been moving anywhere if it weren’t for the dedication of the City of Huron street crews. We are fortunate to live and serve in a community that truly supports one another and does what it takes to lend a helping hand.
I surely hope that spring is finally here to stay – and I’m grateful to know whatever the weather, the HRMC team is committed to caring for all who live and work in this place we call home.
With sincere appreciation,
HRMC President & CEO
