The Board of Directors for the Dryden Regional Health Centre is thanking hospital leaders and frontline staff who are working to protect the community, during the COVID-19 outbreak.

“Led by our CEO, Doreen Armstrong-Ross, the DRHC is staffed with knowledgeable and skilled individuals and is prepared,” said Board Chair Judi Green, in a prepared release.

“These are some of the most challenging times for the entire staff at the DRHC. Information and direction changes rapidly and frequently. Response to the needs of patients, family members, staff and overall community health is paramount. The DRHC leadership teams have effectively mobilized to ensure and maintain the safety of our community.”

“The Board of Directors thanks each one of the staff, including medical and non-medical who are working selflessly for all of us. Superheroes don’t always wear capes. In effectively managing this crisis, we recognize and appreciate the long hours being put in, including24/7 availability.”

Green adds that while social distancing measures are proving to be working in the region and Ontario as a whole, they still need to be strictly followed to prevent further outbreaks.

“It is critically important that we continue to strictly follow the advice and direction of health organizations and government who are leading the country’s response to this pandemic. It is equally important to know that the DRHC is continually working to meet and minimize the impact of COVID-19 within our community”

Green also thanked the community for their outpouring of support, including PPE donations, positive signs in yards and on homes, cloth mask donations, requests for collaboration, guidance and more.
