    Our front line workers,
    So strong and so brave.
    Thank them immensely,
    For keeping us safe.
    Be patient, be kind,

  64. As a nurse at Saugeen memorial I firstly wanted to say thanks to Donna Chappell. Donna is a true example of grace under pressure. The countless hours she spends making sure her staff is safe and happy goes way beyond what anyone would expect out of someone in her position. Secondly I wanted to thank the doctors and nurses, lab techs, xray/ultrasound techs I work side by side with everyday here. You are all an amazing group of people and being able to work by your side through this time is an honour. Next I’d like to thank our food service and housekeeping staff, without you we wouldn’t be able to work. Lastly I want to thank all the behind the scenes staff that people may not think about in such a crisis, from the maintenance people that fill our endless requests to fix things, the hospital foundation that works so hard to find us funds that are required to run this hospital. The ward clerks that still come to work everyday and help make sure that our days run smoothly, you guys rock! (I’m sure I’ve missed people, if so please know we appreciate everything you do)
    As you can see the hospital is so much more then doctors and nurses. It’s takes an army to run this place, and I could imagine a better army to go into this battle with then my family at saugeen memorial hospital❤️❤️

  65. Thank you all so much! You are all our heroes…medical staff and hospital workers. Please take care of yourselves. Hugs

  66. YOU ARE TRUE HEROES! Doctors, nurses, paws, cleaners, support staff, paramedics, social workers, researchers and everyone who is working to fight our common enemy, Covid19. We know the risks you are taking for yourselves and your families and we want you to know that we are doing our part.

    We are now the FRONT LINE of defence by staying home and social distancing when we can not. STAY SAFE AND THANK YOU!

  67. For everyone working in any aspect of health care these days, we send our heart-felt thanks. Praying that you and your families get through this in healthy mind, body & spirit.

  68. Thank you to all the doctors, nurses, medical support staff, housekeeping staff, as well as all the other people in their various roles who are working diligently to keep everyone healthy. What you do is appreciated. We are grateful for your service.
