A Message from the Heywood Healthcare Board of Trustees

Dear Heywood Healthcare Employees:

The current pandemic has created the most challenging medical care environment our country has ever seen and as a result has put healthcare organizations in a position most of us could not have imagined possible. As Trustees of Heywood Healthcare, we want to acknowledge the amazing work that all of you are doing to care for the needs of our patients and communities in a positive, compassionate and professional manner as well as remaining mindful of your own personal safety and wellbeing.

While as Trustees we are not on the frontline, we continue to work closely with Win and the leadership team to help guide and support decisions that ensure both near and long-term success for this amazing community-based healthcare organization.

The strength of this organization is, and will always be, its people. It is clear that all of  you are doing your part to continue to place the community in good hands during this challenging and unprecedented time.

Thank you for all you do!

Sincerely,

Robert Chauvin

Chair, Heywood Healthcare Board of Trustees
