SSM Health, local leaders honor health care workers with moment of silence

MADISON, Wis. — The pandemic has tested the strength of health care workers, first responders and many others who put themselves at risk for the wellbeing of others over the past year.

That’s why SSM Health and local leaders in Madison and Dane County joined others across the country to mark a moment of silence Monday as part of National Hospital and Health Care Week. The moment of silence was a way to recognize all health care workers, first responders, essential workers and those who have lost loved ones from COVID-19.

The moment of silence was held shortly after 10 a.m. You can watch a portion of the ceremony below and on our Channel3000 Facebook page.
