At Fairfield Medical Center, we’re used to taking care of our community – it’s what we do. When the COVID-19 outbreak presented challenges our healthcare organization had never experienced before, including the threat of supply and PPE shortages, it was you – our community – who helped take care of us. You sewed masks and donated supplies. You supported our staff by bringing in meals, homemade cards and other surprises to help lift our morale and keep us motivated. You helped see us through those difficult first months. We couldn’t have done it without you.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who was and continues to be there for us during one of the most challenging times in our nation’s history. We hope you know that every mask you sewed and every box of PPE you donated went toward saving a life in our community. Every card or video message you sent helped bring a smile to someone’s face when they needed it most. There was no act of kindness that went unnoticed. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making such a huge difference in our lives.
