Michael Costa, CEO of NCHC shared:
During COVID-19, Kennedy has helped make sure team members and the organization have what they need to feel supported, partnered with hospitals and nursing homes to be ready for a surge in care, navigated a myriad of changes in employment law and practice, and kept the organization’s leadership initiatives on track. The people make the organization, and Kennedy makes sure our people are well-supported and ready to serve our community.
Thank you to Kennedy for serving behind the scenes to support NCHC’s employees and efforts to ensure continued health care for our communities.
