Dear Community Members,
We have all been through a chaotic few months. As if the pain caused by the COVID-19 health crisis was not enough, we now have seen the killing of individuals in the black community.
LRGHealthcare has always been an organization that embraces and supports every identity. One component of our mission specifically states that we exist to strengthen the well-being of our community. Today and every day, we stand with our black community members, patients and employees. We reject racism and intolerance, and pledge to promote more education, listening, and reflection to ensure we are actively supporting the community.
During a time when many people are anxious and traumatized by recent events, it is okay not to feel okay. We must listen to each other and not shy away from uncomfortable conversations. We embrace our responsibility to make sure everyone feels supported every day. We have always believed inclusion and communication are the keys to ensuring every voice has the opportunity to be heard.
Let’s be part of the solution at all times. We are 1,300 strong, dedicated to the health and wellbeing of our patients, community and each other.
Kevin W. Donovan, President and CEO of LRGHealthcare
