The Nazareth Hospital and the broader Nazareth community have been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The hospital has auffered significant financial losses due to the temporary closure of the pediatric surgical and internal medicine wards to create 60 intensive-care beds for COVID-19 patients. The Hospital’s staff face many challenges as they adjust to new work assignments and schedules and also experience anxiety about their own health and that of their loved ones.
