Hometown Heroes in the Fight Against COVID-19
The Township invited residents to honor their hometown heroes in the COVID-19 fight by submitting pictures to post on the Township website. We are pleased to publish those photos here and to thank those heroes for all they have done. This gallery will be updated as more photos are submitted.
Sandy is a hero all the time, but especially during the Covid crisis… Sandy is the Chief Nursing Officer at Phoenixville Hospital (2nd from the left in the picture) working 12-14 hours a day plus working on the weekends to keep our hometown hospital running and safe (while simultaneously pursuing her Doctorate degree!)
Our hometown hero is our daughter, Andrea (Rockey) Behrman. Andrea grew up on Diamond Rock Road, went to Villa Maria Academy, U. Pennsylvania for both her BSN and MSN and is a Nurse Practitioner at New York University Langone Hospital in Manhattan. She had her second daughter June 28th and took a 6 month leave, returning in January, just before the surfacing of the Coronavirus 19. She worked on the Pediatric Pulmonary-Cardio-Thoracic Intensive Care Unit. But, toward the end of March they turned it into the Adult Covid19 ICU unit. She was in the midst of the trauma and death until the last picture…she sent it to us saying they had just discharged all the adult patients–Tuesday, April 21, @ 7:53pm. For now she’s back to treating very sick babies, and we pray it remains that way!!!!
Thank you for the opportunity to acknowledge special people in our community! Stay safe, stay strong!
Our PASD senior, MaryKate McCann!
Why? Because she adjusted so well to the rapid changes that the quarantine brought on. No complaints, no beats missed!
My Hero is Marla Stevens, a nurse anesthetist at Einstein Montgomery Hospital. Marla lives on VF Mountain in Phoenixville. She goes to work every day to help her patients during this crisis, selfishly putting her life in danger. She is awesome!!!
Thank you Marla!
