Each August, National Health Center Week is celebrated across the country. At Kennedy Community Health, this week is an opportunity to recognize the hard work, dedication, and accomplishments of our staff. This year the celebration takes on new meaning due to the sacrifices being made by each and every one of our staff members who are working tirelessly to ensure our patients and community stay healthy and safe as we fight the pandemic together.
The pressures and demands put upon our staff as a result of COVID-19 have been tremendous. Despite the threat posed by the virus, our doors have remained open to screen and test patients for the virus and provide care as needed to high risk groups. Our staff spent hours navigating the continuous stream of new requirements and protocols to deal with the outbreak by re-imagining new and safer ways to provide care, including quickly ramping up a comprehensive telehealth program. These sacrifices and their commitment to our patients contributed greatly to our Commonwealth’s ability to flatten the curve.
This August, we are asking for your support of these rock stars. As we begin to reintroduce more in-person visits, personal protective equipment (PPE) and other supplies that help our staff remain safe and protected in this dangerous time continue to be in great demand. Your donation will directly benefit some of the greatest heroes of the pandemic: health care workers. By contributing, you are honoring the selfless work they do and ensuring that they have the tools and resources they need to keep doing it, and do it safely.
We appreciate the on-going support of our work and our mission to “help people live healthier lives.” Together, as a community, is the only way we get through this.
Again, thank you for your support!
