Tampa General Hospital wanted to “shine a spotlight” on its more than 8,000 team members. So was born the idea for two videos.
The first, “Thank You,” is a message of appreciation to not just Tampa General’s team, but healthcare workers worldwide. Among the quotes from the video: “For many you will be the calm in a storm of uncertainty,” and “As others fear the worst, you will show them your best.”
The other video targets Tampa General workers with messages from 10 of 16 hospital board members.
Both were posted on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. “The videos are nearing half a million views, have been shared over 2,000 times,” according to an email from Tampa General.
“Team members are putting themselves on the front lines and it’s critical to be honest and open about the challenges they are up against during this pandemic,” the Tampa General email said. “It’s OK to acknowledge that it’s scary. To acknowledge that there are sacrifices and risks. That honesty builds trust, which is essential.”
Modern Healthcare will show its own appreciation for healthcare stars in the May 11 issue.
