2020 Community Health Heroes

Munson Healthcare, through the Munson Healthcare Community Health Committee, recognizes individuals and organizations in our community who contribute significantly toward improving the health and well-being of our community. These are our Community Health Heroes.

Typically, our Community Health Heroes promote health and wellness, chronic disease prevention and management, and support community health improvement by focusing on the unmet needs and root causes of poor health in our community. This year, we honor the entire community for their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.

When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit northern Michigan, members of the community and local businesses immediately reached out to ask how they could help. We were overwhelmed by the support across our system.

To all those who were not named specifically here – who showed up at the door with food and other supplies—and to those who gave anonymously. We are humbled by the outpouring of support from our communities. We thank the following individuals and organizations for their heroism.

List of Hero Names & Businesses

If you supported us during this time and do not see your name or business listed here, please accept our apologies. Our hospitals received thousands of donations, some dropped off anonymously and without documentation. However, these gifts are no less appreciated. 

COVID-19 remains a concern, and while we are stronger and better prepared, we are not out of the woods yet. We thank each of you for continuing to mask up, maintain social distance, and practice good hand hygiene. We will get through this together.
