At great personal risk and sacrifice, healthcare providers remain on NH’s front lines.

These are our neighbors.  They are fighting for all of us.  They stand ready to provide critical services in a time of unimaginable need. They are unseen heroes, hidden by masks, caps, gowns.


We cannot thank them enough.


New Hampshire’s healthcare workers have gained lifesaving knowledge and experience caring for COVID-19 patients for these many months. They share that with our community whenever needed. They continue to be there without question and without fail.  In the face of COVID-19, they continuously step up despite tremendous adversity.


People committed to people.

Healthcare teams across southern New Hampshire continue to be a vast resource for our communities. These people are part of our community. They are the stalwart institutions made up of individuals who are our neighbors, our friends, brothers and sisters, moms and dads, partners and spouses, and grandparents. They are part of our family. These institutions have led by example. Their people have led through sacrifice.


They’ve worked tirelessly preparing remote triage and care sites, sourcing materials and equipment, training, educating, and comforting. In the face of this pandemic, they have answered the call, all while still meeting our communities’ everyday healthcare needs. They have worked with community leaders so we have the right equipment – ventilators and masks – to deliver treatment. They’ve educated our community on how we can help.


They have always been there. We may just never have seen them. Now we do.


The nurses made me feel like I was a part of their family.

One minute, Mark Hagopian was having trouble breathing, the next day he was put into a medically induced coma and was put on a ventilator at The Elliot after it was confirmed he was COVID-19 positive. Despite not having his family with him in the hospital, Hagopian says he got through it thanks to our staff who went above and beyond and were there for him when his wife couldn’t be.


We live the stories people live to talk about.

Caregivers are working through their own emotions of fear and stress so that, in the moment, they’re able to give complete attention to those who will be more scared, more vulnerable, and more stressed.

``I can't wait to get home and hug my daughter again.``

``I miss my family, but I'm proud to be saving yours.``

Your neighbors stand ready at the front line.

Their families pray for their safe return. What makes our community strong is our commitment to each other. Just as the hospitals and their teams are committed to keeping us safe and healthy, we must be there for them.


Nothing is more important than health. The fabric of our society is our connection to each other. Today, health care providers are saying goodbye to their families so that they can help care for and treat the most aggressive virus we’ve seen in our lifetimes. They say goodbye because they cannot risk seeing family and possibly spreading the illness.


It is our responsibility to help them return home.

To bring back our neighbors to their families. Our community has stepped up with individuals providing care packages, companies retooling their operations to provide critical materials, and most importantly by following the guidelines of social distancing and masking orders.


We can all do our part. We can overcome this pandemic. It will take all of us. Look outside your window. Look down the street. The first responders and healthcare professionals are leaving their homes.

They are no longer just our neighbors. They are our heroes.

Many of us have been impacted by COVID-19. We either know a front line doctor or nurse or we know someone that has been infected. These stories hit very close to home. But as long as we have healthy, protected experts on the front line our communities will remain safe.


Our front line teams need you now more than ever.
