Starting with the positive

Last week, we started a new feature on our Facebook page, “Behind the Mask.” From time to time it’ll highlight different groups or areas in the hospital and provide the public with bits of information not readily known about how we’re responding to the pandemic. The most recent feature is on Environmental Services. (Click photo to enlarge)
