Healthcare Heroes: ‘We Are Strong, We Are Dedicated, We Are Compassionate’

These are the healthcare heroes at Loyola Medicine, the warriors on the front lines. Behind masks, goggles and face shields, they smile. You can see it in their eyes.

They are physicians, nurses, lab technicians, mail clerks, security guards, cooks—each one a hero. In the face of this new and devastating coronavirus, they keep going. They keep the hospitals of Loyola Medicine humming along, doing the work to support everyday operations while physicians and nurses take on what’s far from every day.

These heroes are spread across Loyola Medicine’s three hospitals: MacNeal Hospital in Berwyn, Gottlieb Memorial Hospital in Melrose Park and Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood.

“Doing our part to save lives,” the heroes say through signs. “Do your part by staying home.”

There’s no doubt the battles are tough, as the patients admitted with COVID-19 have the severest cases. The healthcare heroes at Loyola Medicine are doing everything they can to keep these patients alive. An elbow bump in the video says it all: We got this.

“We stay here for you,” their signs say. “Please stay home for us.”

Outside Loyola Medicine hospitals, the message is clear. It’s gratitude. These healthcare heroes are doing the toughest job during the toughest time many of us can remember.

“We love MacNeal heroes!”

“We love Gottlieb heroes!”

“We love Loyola heroes!”
