A Tribute to Dr. Douglas Smith and Nurse Lindsay Elliott
As we, our clients, and industry friends around the world come to terms with the stark realities, both at home and at work, of the COVID-19 period, we feel it is very important to pause and express our heartfelt thanks to the numerous professionals working tirelessly to save lives and keep essential services running smoothly.
In particular, we are incredibly grateful for the healthcare professionals who risk their lives every day to provide essential medical services to the victims of COVID-19.
Above and to the right are recently taken photos of Dr. Smith and Lindsay Elliott, R.N. in full PPE during a long shift tending to seriously ill patients in the hospital. Despite the strain and stress of working long hours in the emergency room, they never fail to find the time to provide timely expertise and support to our Mariner Medical Management Team and the clients we serve.
Despite taking every possible precaution, both Douglas and Lindsay contracted COVID-19. Douglas's wife Amanda soon contracted it as well. Even while ill, Douglas, Lindsay, and Amanda continued to handle active IMC-3M cases and projects while battling with the symptoms and caring for their very active children. We are all inspired by their determination, and dedication to our clients.
We are blessed to have such a dedicated, courageous, compassionate and skilled physician on our team.
Thank you, Team!!
