Thank you from the President

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your kind words, gestures, and meals during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you, too, for your generous donations to the Winchester Hospital Healthcare Heroes Fund. All of us here have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from people we know and those who we have never met. It has been so gratifying to know that our community is aware that many have put their lives at risk while caring for patients.

I can now say that we fought the greatest pandemic in our history, and are coming out on the other side. Although we continue to care for COVID-19 positive patients, our numbers have significantly decreased.

As we begin to resume many routine and elective procedures, we want to assure you that we are taking every precaution to keep you and our staff safe. Our Safe Care plan meets or exceeds safety standards from the US Centers for Disease Control and the MA Department of Public Health.

So again, I thank you and reassure you that, as we have for 108 years, Winchester Hospital stands ready to take care of you, your family, and your friends.

With gratitude,

Richard Weiner, MD
