Abrazo Health hospitals across the Valley, including the Arrowhead campus, 18701 N. 67th Ave., invited local first responders as well as hospital staff to enjoy burgers, hot dogs and other treats grilled and served by hospital leaders, Nov. 17.
West Campus CEO Stephen Garner said Abrazo’s Community Built on Heroes events were designed to show gratitude and give thanks to frontline health care workers and first responders during the most challenging time of their professional lives, the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the pandemic continues, Abrazo Health leaders wanted to let hospital staff, providers and first responders know their work is appreciated, he explained.
Even during the pandemic, emergencies happen, people get sick, patients need care, and babies continue to be born.
Abrazo Health leaders created this opportunity to show gratitude and thanks for the sacrifices made by front line caregivers, CEO Brian Elisco said.
“These health care heroes in our hospitals and the community have been working under very stressful conditions protecting our public health. We wanted to have a public show of support of their efforts. This is an opportunity to spread goodwill and positivity for health care workers and first responders,” Elisco said. “Our colleagues in the health care community have been under tremendous stress, yet these unselfish heroes are committed to their mission day-in-and-day-out.”
