Greg Poole-Dayan, Wartburg’s Chief Operating Officer, said of the nursing staff, “Today is the first day of 2020 National Nurses’ Week. As we look back on the past 8 weeks and how it has affected everyone – from a local to a world level – nurses continue to be at the forefront of caring for the sick and promoting health for all of our residents and patients, and their families. On behalf of the Administrative team of Wartburg, our sincere and everlasting gratitude for all you have done, and all that you will continue to do to keep our residents safe, healing those who are sick, comforting those in distress, and easing the pain of those who are dying.”

There has been an overwhelming community appreciation for the courageous care giving staff on this campus who’ve worked to combat the greatest healthcare crisis in more than a century and under unprecedented physically and emotionally challenging circumstances. Our gratitude for their passion, commitment, and continued service is everlasting
