Gerber Memorial grateful for Newaygo County community support
It was two nights before Christmas. A lengthy siege that began in the spring had taken a toll on our hospital workers who served at the front lines in the fight to contain the pandemic surging throughout the country and increasingly affecting our community.
So the community said thanks.
Drew Dostal, Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial president and regional leader for Spectrum Health’s northwest region acknowledged this epic show of support.
“Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial is grateful for our community’s support and watching the heartfelt response from first responders, law enforcement, small businesses and families was moving to all of us at Gerber Memorial.
“For more than 100 years, we have served this community and our team members are also members of this community, many with deep roots that go back generations. We are honored and blessed to be able to care for this community and work to improve health, inspire hope and save lives.
“We are thankful for a generous, loving community that continues to support us in so many different ways, from practicing safety habits like wearing masks and socially distancing, to donating food and beverages that helps sustain our team members. Our community shows us that we are truly stronger together”
