Our Hospital and Emergency Department staffs are treating a significant number of patients at this time. This is causing delays in our ability to admit patients, and - in some cases - requiring us to divert patients to other area hospitals. We are taking all measures to provide the best possible care despite this surge. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this difficult time.

"A sincere thank you to each and every one of you for dedication and taking care and trying to heal some very, very sick people. The endless hours, the personal health risk and the fact that you truly care do not go unnoticed. We love and adore all of you and talk frequently about the dedication and service that you provide the hospitalized. You are the true heroes of this awful crisis."
"What an honor it is to work alongside such a dedicated, caring and pleasant person as Deb Heady!

Our prayers and thanks go out to all of you!"
"Thank you to the amazing JMH Emergency Department staff, who I saw entirely too much of this year. You continued to treat me with respect and urgency through a tough battle, even after I knew you all by name just coming in the door. I know you're weary - so many of us are - but thank you for continuing to show up and care for those of us who have needed you most."
"Thank you so much for all that you do. I know you are tired and probably discouraged, but we need you so much. My husband and I are doing everything we can to stay safe so you won't have to take care of us. Take care, you are so appreciated!"
