As a relative newcomer to the greater Cincinnati region, I am amazed by the
degree of cooperation, generosity, kindness and openness demonstrated by its
residents, employers, nonprofit organizations, government officials, and my
colleagues at other health systems. I am inspired by those who are being asked
to step into the center of this pandemic and do so – the nurses,
physicians, and all of the support staff who keep healthcare organizations
running smoothly – as well as our police force, firefighters, and so
many more. Without these individuals, we would not be able to tend to the ill,
comfort the hurt, or provide our community the crucial care it deserves.
Within our families and throughout our neighborhoods, there are widespread
feelings of fear, loneliness, uncertainty, and isolation. We’re now in
a new world for which many are unprepared. Our society is aching for a time when
we can once again connect with one another – with friends for drinks,
with family over meals, or to simply shake a hand or give a hug.
Today, The Christ Hospital family commits to doing everything humanly
possible to ensure that our community stays fully connected. We’re
writing letters to the elderly who are isolated from their families.
We’re opening up phone lines for our patients to call when they need

patients to access the care they need. And we’re hosting virtual
community forums, where groups can socialize and share experiences. There has
never been a more important moment in time….where we can not only
strengthen the bonds with current and past connections but also build new
That moment is now. Please join me and everyone at The Christ Hospital as we
work to lift up the community and send a message to all those in need that you
are not alone. We will be here with you today, tomorrow, and always –
as a beacon of hope and strength.
That moment to be there for one another is now.
We know many of you are looking for ways to support and connect with the most
vulnerable in our communities. Sending a note to patients, nursing home
residents and frontline caregivers is powerful – and they need your
encouragement now more than ever.
From all of us, thank you for thinking of those most impacted by these
current events and providing them with extra comfort and care.
That moment to teach by example is now.
