To the Lee County community,

As we enter the special time of year traditionally associated with giving and thankfulness, I wanted to take a moment to recognize our team of dedicated healthcare heroes at Central Carolina Hospital. 

It is difficult to imagine a more challenging time for our community than what we have faced over the past eight months of the COVID-19 pandemic. This public health crisis continues to take its toll on our community, demand even more of our energy and efforts to keep ourselves and others safe, and change life as we know it.

We have an incredibly talented, committed, and courageous team fighting this virus on the front lines at Central Carolina Hospital every day. You can rest assured that our employees are hard at work caring for you and your family, friends, and neighbors around the clock. This gives me some peace of mind as we continue to face the pandemic and it is my hope that it does the same for you.

Every one of our colleagues – whether providing direct patient care or supporting those who do – plays a vital role in helping ensure our patients receive the best possible care and our hospital is as clean and safe as possible. I am grateful for their extraordinary efforts during these demanding days, their passion for serving others and their ability to keep a positive outlook. I simply cannot thank our providers and employees enough for the countless ways they contribute to our mission of Making Communities Healthier and for continuing to provide our community with compassionate, quality healthcare.

We have felt immense love and support from our community since the beginning of the pandemic. It has been humbling to say the least. As our battle continues, I sincerely hope you will keep our team in your thoughts and find a way to share your gratitude for a healthcare worker you appreciate. Your support continues to fuel our team and lift our spirits - thank you for standing by us. 

Please be diligent and do your part by continuing to wear your mask, wash your hands and keep your distance from others. We are all in this together, and we will get through this together. 

As always, we are here for you whenever you need us. There is no doubt that we are in the middle of an unprecedented moment, but we are confident that our talented team will continue to rise to the challenge. Even in these uncertain times, the one true constant has always been – and will continue to be – our team of heroes at Central Carolina Hospital.
