Town Launches Healthcare Hero Recognition Program

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and members of the Town Board invite residents to help recognize Healthcare Heroes by writing Thank You letters that will be distributed during National Public Health Week, which runs from April 5th to April 11th. During National Public Health Week, thousands of Thank You letters will be distributed from residents to frontline healthcare workers who, over the past year, have bravely battled the COVID-19 pandemic at hospitals, healthcare centers, and nursing homes.

“This past year has been one of the toughest ones as the war against the global coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on. No one group has seen the devastating effects of COVID-19 more than our frontline Healthcare Heroes, who have bravely battled day in and day out at our hospitals, healthcare centers, and nursing homes, in an effort to help as many people as possible,” Supervisor Saladino said. “Together, we will let our courageous doctors, nurses, and healthcare heroes know that they and their sacrifices have not been forgotten – in the midst of the most challenging public health crisis of our lifetime. I invite all residents to participate in this program, and help let our healthcare heroes know what an incredible difference they are making in so many lives.”
