UPLAND — Tents and music and laughter took center stage on the Crozer-Medical Center lawn as part of a Heroes Month luau, as officials wanted to applaud their employees before a potential spike from COVID-19 may resurface.
Crozer Health was celebrating Heroes Month all throughout September after being forced to severely curtail its spring salutes for Hospital Week, Nurses Week, Doctors Day and EMS Week due to COVID-19. After that, Crozer Health CEO Peter Adamo convened a 20-member Staff Engagement Team and the Physician Engagement Team to create a tribute worthy of the Crozer system.
“We deliver services at 150 different locations,” Adamo said. “So, trying to make sure that everybody is involved is a major undertaking so we can’t do this every day. But, we have food going to all of those spots. We try to do it seven days a week so that no one is left out.
