Recognizing the Faces of the Frontline

BARRY’S BAY – The Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) has affected day-to-day life across the globe.

Despite this, frontline workers, including those at St. Francis Memorial Hospital, Valley Manor and Madawaska Valley Hospice Palliative Care continue to live by the motto, ‘Here for You.’

Every day they show up and take the necessary precautions to protect, not only themselves, but the patients they serve.

Adhering to the additional personal protective equipment, screening, and social distancing requirements, our frontline staff are doing everything they can to ensure a safe work environment for all.

To honour the many sacrifices made by these faces of the frontline, St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation has released a special video via its Facebook page. The video showcases photographs, alongside positive characteristic words, that embodies our frontline workers from the hospital, Valley Manor and hospice.

“We wanted to thank all of our local healthcare workers for their dedication during this difficult time,” St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation Executive Director Erin Gienow said. “From the personal support workers, to housekeeping, dietary, IT, doctors, nurses and administration – we are so grateful to every one of the frontline staff at our local organizations.”
