NORWOOD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Norwood Hospital says as they work to keep morale up for their staff, they are appreciative of all the community is doing to support them during the coronavirus pandemic.
Norwood Hospital President Dr. Salvatore Perla says it can be "physically and mentally draining" battling COVID-19 on the frontlines. At the hospital, attention to employee morale is only surpassed by the attention given to patients.
"There's so many different things that we do to try and keep people's spirits up in a difficult time," Dr. Perla said.
The community that the hospital serves is working to reinforce those efforts to boost morale.
"Last Sunday, I came in and we got beautiful potted flowers from Lamberts," Dr. Perla said. Meanwhile the Olde Colonial Cafe in Norwood said they would make chicken parmesan for the hospital.
"It brings so much joy to know that people really care about our health care workers," Dr. Perla said.
