Thank A Healthcare Hero

As we continue to fight COVID-19, it has been so encouraging to see the outpouring of support from our community for UP Health System - Bell. We have always striven to be a place where you choose to come for healthcare, and we take our responsibility as a community leader very seriously. Our healthcare workers are a cornerstone of our mission of Making Communities Healthier, and they are integral members of our community. They are also – today especially – heroes. UPHS - Bell honors our providers and employees who are working hard to ensure a safer and healthier community for all of us.

  • Write a letter that could be shared internally and/or externally.
