Celebrating our Heroes – Northern Light Health 2020 Annual Report



2020 is a year that has defined who we are, how we live our lives, and how we look out for the most vulnerable of our citizens. The coronavirus shined a spotlight on the work that we do every day to heal the sick and keep our communities safe. What that spotlight revealed is that there are heroes among us across Northern Light Health and in our communities.  


They are ICU Nurses, CNAs, ED physicians, Environmental Services workers, IS workers, small business owners, and even high school students. We’ll be featuring them in our 2020 Annual Report due out soon. Until then, we’re happy to share with you this short video preview of some of those featured in the report. We like to call this our sizzler reel. We hope you enjoy it.
