NGMC Braselton Covid Update
Northeast Georgia Medical Center is planning to recognize their front-line healthcare workers and are hoping to have some posters/signs to hold up as staff are walking in to work and leaving for the day.  Simple messages like, “We Appreciate You!” or “Thanks for all you do!
If this is something that you are interested in doing please make your sign and drop it off at the clubhouse and the VDC staff will bring them over to the hospital. The size of the poster/sign doesn’t matter…hospital leaders will be holding them as staff walk by. Thanks in advance to anyone interested in doing this!
