Meeting the Challenge: Skybridge thanks 

There are countless ways to say thank you. Given the efforts of our Healthcare Heroes to keep our communities safe during this crisis, we took another small step toward showing our thanks for the tireless efforts of doctors, nurses and other caregivers on Thursday, May 21, 2020. 

Discovering how to say thanks 

These heroes have all risen to the occasion, working with dedication to provide amazing care to the patients and families who count on us. When you see the sign on the Flagstaff Medical Center Skybridge, please remember your colleagues and leaders deeply appreciate all the sacrifices you have made in order to meet this extraordinary challenge. 

Shared gratitude 

“It made me feel really good to hang this sign,” said installer Jesus Velarde who was high above Beaver Street hanging the sign on Thursday morning. “I have family in another state who were cared for by healthcare workers and this felt like me saying thank you to them – as well as to nurses at FMC.” 

Northern Arizona Healthcare worked with a local sign company, Signarama, to create the banner. We are truly better together as we work with partners in our communities! 

Northern Arizona Healthcare is proud to share inspiring stories from across the system and throughout our communities in on our Meeting the Challenge series. If you have a story about a colleague, community member, business, or organization that’s going above and beyond in our fight against COVID-19 let us know.
