“This commemorative event is to both grieve those we have lost and celebrate the small wins,” says Cooley Dickinson Chief Nursing Officer Angela Belmont, DNP, RN. Those small wins, Belmont adds, surround us today and are a testament to how we continue – more than one year later – to take care of our community amidst the continuing pandemic.

Speakers include Dr. David Brown, Cooley Dickinson interim president and CEO; a patient treated for COVID at Cooley Dickinson Hospital; and staff representing the Critical Care unit and the Emergency Department; the Medical/Surgical units; operations teams and the VNA & Hospice.

A plaque presentation and a moment of silence will follow the perspectives shared by each of the speakers.

“There were so many challenges this past year,” Belmont says. “We need to celebrate and remember all that our staff have done for our patients and for each other.”

If people are unable to attend the livestream event as it is happening, a recording will be available next week.
