Adopt an ICU: Northwest Hospital
We were invited into a terrific opportunity to love our neighbors by our friends at Redemption Tucson Church and we are excited to finally share it with you.
Introducing "Adopt an ICU": Northwest Medical Center
Holy Cross is "Adopting" the ICU at Northwest Medical Center to provide encouragement, support, and prayer to those on the frontlines of the pandemic in our community. We recognize the long-term impact and PTSD that can develop with the emotional strain and burden caring for those that are dying or are in critical condition, working long hours in an abundance of PPE, carrying the stress of an overwhelmed healthcare system, and sometimes even having to be separated from family.
From now through September, we want to tangibly bless the staff and let them know they’re not alone as this health crisis has ramped up significantly and has impacted and will continue to impact their own physical and mental health. Whether it's making cards, purchasing protein bars and other easy-to-grab snacks, or other encouragement, we want to come alongside them.
Two action points as we begin to provide ongoing encouragement:
1. Sign up for a spot to coordinate some type of blessing for the ICU nurses (76 staff). You can sign up with your own household, a group of friends, or as a whole Life Group. On the week that you are assigned, you can coordinate with Whitney to arrange a dropoff. Sign up for an upcoming spot HERE.
2. Pray with us for the staff at Northwest Medical Center. Specifically for those in the ICU, we want to pray for their health, safety, family's health, time to be able to eat, rest, and continue caring well for our neighbors. Pray for healing for those patients in the ICU and comfort for the families that are in pain and not able to be physically present with their loved ones due to COVID restrictions.
If you have any questions about what to bring or are looking for creative ways to engage in this project, please email Whitney Losacker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
