Hospital happenings

You may remember seeing a video of Cynthia Murphy working in occupational therapy earlier this week. Cynthia, a teacher for more than 40 years, was working on her classroom when she had a stroke that left her unable to move her left side. Here, Cynthia is working on her ability to stand and walk. Her therapy team is using a mirror to remind her to keep her head up so she can ambulate safely. She has made great progress so far!

Wednesday night candles were displayed in the courtyard to show our appreciation for community healthcare workers, first responders and providers. Patients could see the candlelight display from their rooms. We are thankful for everyone who is supporting our community, from those working tirelessly to stock the shelves at grocery stores to the nurses and doctors on the front lines providing patient care. We are stronger together.
