Our local Healthcare Heroes at Newman Regional Health are feeling the strain of increased COVID-19 community spread while also continuing to provide regular day-to-day patient care. This virus has turned our lives upside down in ways that none of us could have imagined, yet here we are. The 650 staff members at Newman Regional Health have dedicated tens-of-thousands of hours performing COVID-19 care.
Every day these individuals continue to provide life-saving care to our community. Every day they understand that they may come face-to-face with a pandemic. Every day they worry that they may bring COVID-19 home to their husbands, wives, children, grandchildren, mother or father.
Join us at Emporia Mainstreet as we recognize these local healthcare heroes for their contribution to keeping all of us healthy and safe.
