Thank a Hero

Dean French, MD, CEO

As we continue to fight COVID-19, it has been so encouraging to see the outpouring of support from Missoula for Community Medical Center. We have always striven to be a place where patients choose to come for healthcare, and we take our responsibility as a community leader very seriously. As our neighbors have come together to do everything possible to slow the spread of this vicious virus amid unprecedented challenges, we have never been prouder to be a part of this community. It is more important than ever that we all continue to take the important steps necessary to keep our community as safe and healthy as possible, including staying home, practicing social distancing when in public including in our parks and open spaces and following sound medical guidance.

Some moments ask more of us as a society, as a community and as individuals. Moments like those need heroes. From grocery store employees and delivery workers to educators teaching remotely and those keeping our infrastructure and essential services running, this current moment has no shortage of heroes.

These heroes are integral members of our community. They are moms and dads. Brothers and sisters. Friends and neighbors. And – today especially – they are heroes on the frontlines providing services when it’s needed most.

At Community Medical Center, we honor all our providers and employees working hard to ensure a safe place of care and a healthier community for all of us. Thank a hero on your social media channel and mark your calendar to howl for healthcare workers in Missoula at 8 pm each night.

And thank you again for supporting Community Medical Center and trusting us with your care as we help guide our community through the COVID-19 situation as safely as possible. We will get through this together.
