Health Care Heroes at Work

A nurse is a crucial part of a health care team because they are there for patients every step of the way on their road to recovery. They also go above and beyond the call of duty to connect you with the resources you need to feel better.

We invite you to join us for National Nurses Week, May 6-12th, to honor and recognize nurses on the front lines of this pandemic. During the spread of COVID-19, nurses have taken on the challenge of caring for patients in an unprecedented time.

The role of the nurse has expanded during this crisis—many are a source of comfort to those who have contracted the virus and others have had to support a patient emotionally who is unable to have visitors. It is more important now than ever to recognize the brave heroes that have chosen a profession that put’s others before themselves.

With this in mind, it is very fitting that The World Health Organization (WHO) has designated this year as “Year of the Nurse and Midwife”, in honor of the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale. This British nurse was born in 1820, is known as “The Lady with the Lamp” and her legacy lives on as the founder of modern-day nursing.

To encourage our AdventHealth nurses during this crisis and honor the legacy of Florence Nightingale, you can make a donation or write a note honoring those serving on the front lines.

Here are two simple ways to spread hope to our nurses who are working on the front lines during this pandemic:

  1. Write an encouraging note at to AdventHealth nurses who are working tirelessly to maintain the safety of our employees, patients and community.
  2. Give $5 at in honor of a nurse. Once a donation is made, #SpreadThanks by encouraging three friends or family members to do the same.

Help us celebrate the brave nurses at AdventHealth and around the world. We appreciate you, and so does our community!
