2020 was an immensely challenging year for Wisconsin’s health care industry and the professionals who devote their lives to providing health care to the members of their communities. Our health care workers were tested by an indiscriminate global pandemic that has claimed more than 6,000 lives and sickened nearly 600,000 people across the state.
Hospitals and health systems stepped up to fight a protracted surge of COVID-infected patients requiring complex care while also continuing to deliver babies, attend to accident victims and treat chronic disease—adopting extensive protocols to continue to serve patients 24/7.
Simply put, hospitals had our backs. Let’s have theirs.
