The employees at this California hospital are ecstatic after receiving a donation of one million dollars from an unknown donor.
The donor requested that the money be distributed equally among the staff members, therefore the hospital agreed to fulfill their request.
This week, the donation was sent to the Dignity Health Dominican Hospital in Santa Cruz, which is located in the state of California.
Although the donor chose not to reveal their identity, they did write a note with their monetary contribution in which they thanked the recipient for “standing up (and staying up!) to care for our community.” Your selflessness is what elevates you to the status of a hero.
According to the intentions of the donor, the donation will be dispersed among all of the hospital staff members who have been employed at the facility for a minimum of one year, from the security guards and lab technicians to the janitors and mailroom workers.
Bonus checks in the amount of $800 will be given to full-time workers, while incentives in the amount of $600 will be given to part-time workers.
After spending weeks working relentlessly to combat the unique coronavirus outbreaks, the staff members are happy over the gift that was given to them.
Amy Loudon, who works as a nursing supervisor, was quoted by the Associated Press as saying, “There are so many individuals who keep the hospital going.”
“Nurses and physicians are getting the acclaim, but we couldn’t do it without the workers who clean the floors, carry supplies, fix machines, and everything else there is to do here.”
It takes a team, and I’m delighted that the complete team is getting recognized for their contributions.
