BANGOR — Since the COVID-19 pandemic struck in March, men and woman in the health care field have stepped up to the challenge of taking care of the ones in need.
On Thursday at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center, a dedicated space to honor them was unveiled, with five awards given to employees who went above and beyond this year.
“These are the folks in our organization that really live and breathe our values each and everyday each. Each and every patient — we should all be very proud of them,” said President Rand O’Leary.
The dedication ceremony was shown on the hospital’s Facebook page. The wall is located at the Grant 2 section of the medical center.
It will be updated each year to honor the past participants as well as showcase the current recipients.
