Superhero Sharron Seitz helps us turn the corner against Covid-19

Sharron Seitz is Director of Infection Prevention at Memorial Hospital. It's not a job to her but a passion that helps her keep staff, physicians and patients safe.

It has been a challenging year for all of us but especially those on the front lines fighting the pandemic. It took a special person to stay strong and lead others to ensure every patient got the best care possible. 

The gowns, gloves and masks were important but Sharon knew it was the human connection that was needed to turn the tide against this horrible disease. When people work together and hold each other accountable anything is possible. Changes came fast and furious with new protocols to protect life but every single moment of this battle was made worth it when a patient was able to go home to their family and celebrate. 

We can thank superhero Sharron Seitz and her wonderful staff for making this a reality as they continue to help all of us move into a healthier and brighter future.
