Lance Ames, CEO of STHS Children's/STHS Edinburg, received a letter from one of our pediatric patients that he thought was very inspiring. The patient drew a picture of a hospital worker, all in full PPE, a hospital, and an ambulance with the message, “We appreciate what you do. Please stay strong. We need you!”

He shared this with staff saying, "This message is truly reflective of the collective thoughts of our community here in the RGV. You are appreciated, people are rooting for you to “be strong” amidst the stress and exhaustion you feel, and you are needed now more than ever. This is a time for us to pull together and keep going every day knowing that we share the same great purpose of saving lives, one at a time."
