Chuck Hays, president & CEO of MaineGeneral Health, recognized the first responders who greeted MaineGeneral staff today outside the Thayer Center for Health in Waterville and those from the Augusta area who greeted staff at the Alfond Center for Health in Augusta last week.
Chuck’s statement follows:
We’re so inspired by the outpouring of support from our fellow first responders in our community. They’re our partners, with us all year round and during these unprecedented times. We are honored to work beside them, and are so thankful that they are part of our team, protecting our community every day.
All the support we have received in our community brings joy and inspires our staff who are on the front lines of this crisis. This outpouring of support – whether donations of homemade masks or other equipment or simple messages of thanks – has helped us take care of others.
We know this is a challenging time. Everyone is making sacrifices.
We’re here for you, your family and our community. We’ve trained for this, and while there are great unknowns, be assured you have skilled, compassionate care when you need us.
