The COVID-19 Pandemic is the great test of our time. At Beacon Health System, we are staying up to date with every change and making sure we are prepared to protect our frontline healthcare heroes as they work to meet critical medical needs in our communities. We are operating a 24/7 incident command structure, where key personnel continuously monitor patient status, ensure that our staff have proper equipment, and make certain we are prepared for more patients, who are certain to arrive.

I cannot express the level of admiration I have for the team at Beacon. When the rest of the world has been told to stay home, our teams have chosen to show up every day to care for you and the people you love. Make no mistake: While there is fear and uncertainty, there is also courage and resolve.

Many individuals and businesses have stepped up, and we are so appreciative of their love and support. Join me in sending a powerful message to our health heroes that we are with them. Here’s what you can do:

  1. We will directly share your notes of encouragement, video clips or photos/drawings posted with #BeOnTheirTeam or emailed to
  2. Beacon’s Spiritual Care Team has asked – no matter your faith or tradition – please send prayers for protection and strength to our Beacon team.
  3. If you or your organization would like to support our caregivers in other ways, please email us at

Our mission is to deliver outstanding care, inspire health, and connect with heart. I believe the most difficult of times bring out the very best in everyone. Thank you for the opportunity to serve, and thank you for being there for the Beacon team.

Kreg Gruber, CEO
