Be a Hero

Stay home. Save lives.

Heroes are all around us, and as each day passes in the COVID-19 pandemic, there are more and more examples of people going above and beyond to serve others. Our Munson Healthcare Heroes wear many different badges throughout our hospitals, but each one of them helps to provide outstanding care with compassion. And to them, YOU are a hero by staying home to slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep healthcare workers, our patients, and our communities safe.

Why is social distancing so important? It is the single most impactful way we can slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and protect each other, including our healthcare heroes. Our Munson Healthcare Heroes include all the people who work to protect you, like doctors and nurses, various other clinical experts, our dietary and housekeeping staff, our infection prevention team members, and those who make sure our supplies are ready for use. No matter what badges our employees wear at Munson Healthcare, each and every one of our Healthcare Heroes is dedicated to improving lives throughout our communities.

By staying home, you are doing your part so we can do ours. On behalf of the entire Munson Healthcare team, thank you for your support in protecting the safety of our communities.


Here are some additional ways that you can support our Munson Healthcare Heroes.


Munson Healthcare Heroes Poster Contest

We asked kids across our region to cheer on our healthcare heroes by submitting artwork expressing their thanks. Our honored healthcare team then narrowed down the submissions to their favorite five. Now we ask you, our community heroes, to choose the WINNER. The winning poster will be displayed at our hospitals.

How to Help >>

Be a Hero to Patients

Most patients in our hospitals are not allowed to have visitors, due to state-mandated visitor restrictions. These rules are helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19. But that doesn’t mean they can’t have our well wishes!

Submit an encouraging message to let our patients know we are thinking of them.
