Our COVID-19 Journey and Our Vision for the Future
The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically altered the way we all live. At Stonerise, it has forever changed the way we care for our patients and put unprecedented strain on our front-line caregivers, who are essential in every aspect of the word. The past year relentlessly tested the fabric of our operations in an area of healthcare also faced with protecting those who are most vulnerable to the virus.
Grief, anxiety and change were hallmarks of this pandemic inside and outside of our industry. Whether you faced a loss of life, loss of a way of life, loss of income, loss of human fellowship or another form of loss, we all grieve together.
However, there have been inspiring hallmarks from the past year as well: innovation, hope and love. Innovation allowed us to meet new challenges with needed solutions – and fast. Hope kept us going as we anticipated brighter days ahead. Love grounded each of our interactions and reminded us why we’ve chosen lives of service.
We owe it to the thousands of Stonerise team members and patients, and to our countless partners in patient services, community services and public health, to tell our COVID-19 story. Healthcare has always been local, but I’m not sure any of us truly understood the reality of that statement until the pandemic. It truly is remarkable what we have accomplished together during this once-in-a-lifetime global health crisis.
