Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital joined Advocate Aurora Health team members across Illinois and Wisconsin this week in a demonstration of solidarity in honor of George Floyd and in support of equity for all.
Team members at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital, Advocate Condell Medical Center and Advocate Sherman Hospital knelt silently to reflect, demonstrating the power of collective support. They maintained physical distance, but sent a strong message that we’re all in this together.
“It was a powerful moment and you could feel the love, compassion and unity in the air,” Advocate Aurora Health Chief External Affairs Cristy Garcia-Thomas says. “While this was one important moment, our work to foster diverse, respectful communities must never stop.”
Advocate Aurora Health takes pride in cultivating an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion and strives to create a welcoming environment for all.
