UnityPoint Health – Cedar Rapids is asking community members to express their appreciation for our healthcare workers on Valentine’s Day or any day in February.
Individuals may consider showing their gratitude or appreciation for a healthcare worker at UnityPoint Health by completing an act of kindness. Here are some ideas:
- Send a free e-card to a healthcare worker at UnityPoint Health – Cedar Rapids using the available options on the UnityPoint Health website, which may be found at bit.ly/TYUPH.
- Send handwritten cards. They can be sent to St. Luke’s Hospital, 1026 A Ave. NE, Cedar Rapids, 52406 (Attention: Thank a Healthcare Worker)
- Donate blood.
- Give to St. Luke’s Foundation at bit.ly/UPHGive
- Get your COVID-19 vaccine or booster.
For the past two years, healthcare workers have been on the front lines of caring for members of our community sick with COVID and other conditions. They’ve worked long hours, taking away time from being with their family and loved ones. They’ve faced staffing shortages and COVID variants. All while continuing to provide medical care to other sick and injured patients in our community.
They’re exhausted and stressed. Please take a moment and show those who care for our community just how much they matter.
EDITORS: Feb. 14 is Valentine’s Day, but it’s also You Matter Day at UnityPoint Health hospitals. It’s a day to show our team members just how much they matter. Some of our hospital managers and administrators will be handing out candy and valentines to our team members as they come into work on this day from 6:30-8 a.m., 2-3 and 6-7 p.m. If you’d like to stop over and get video or photos of this, please let me know and I direct you to where people are stationed.
