In a joint statement from all Trinity Health West Michigan Presidents and Chief Nursing Officers, leaders thanked health care workers for their commitment to compassionate care and healing when our communities need it most.
“This has been a time of unique changes and fresh beginnings as we work together to forge a brighter future under a new, unified brand. You have each experienced your fair share of challenges these past few years, but you have remained steadfast in your dedication to our shared mission and core values, and in doing so you have delivered exceptional care to our patients.
We understand and appreciate the many demands placed on health care workers every day. We are also deeply grateful for your resilience and tireless work to care for patients and support each other. You and your colleagues continue to positively impact many lives by being a trusted, healing presence in the communities we serve.”
