COVID-19 Comes to Suburban

“We couldn’t be prouder of the way our nurses stepped up to the unique challenges posed by [the] global coronavirus pandemic. You quickly accepted new assignments that took you out of your comfort zones. You learned how to operate testing centers, and how to don and doff personal protective equipment."

“'Heroes Work Here’ is the right sentiment for how Suburban Hospital nurses met the challenge of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Daily, you put our community and patients first. You learned new skills, adapted to daily changes and supported each other. Amazing is what you are!”

Cindy Notobartolo M.S., B.S.N., C.H.E.P., H.E.M.
