Reading Hospital holds
COVID-19 memorial ceremony
O
n Thursday, April 8th at 7 p.m. Reading
Hospital and Reading Hospital Foundation
hosted a COVID-19 memorial ceremony
to pay tribute to Berks County residents who have
died from COVID-19. The event took place at the
Clock Tower on the Reading Hospital campus. One
luminary for each life lost to COVID-19 was placed
surrounding the fountain and along the front lawn.
At the event William M. Jennings, Reading Hospital
President and CEO, and Tom Adil, LPC, Director,
Department of Spiritual Care, made remarks and led
a moment of silence. Mark Woodland, MD, Chair,
Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Reading
Hospital, shared a reflective poem he authored. " We
understand the significant impact COVID-19 has had
on our community, " said Mr. Jennings. " We spent
much of last year away from family and friends. We
wanted to provide a space for our team members and
the community to come together to reflect and honor
those we lost to COVID-19. To all those who suffered
a devastating loss due to the pandemic, everyone at
Reading Hospital and Tower Health expresses our
sincere condolences. "
Reading Hospital Foundation President Katherine
Thornton added, " All luminaria donations received
through the event will be designated to the COVID19
Response Fund and will help to continue to fund
clinical research to improve COVID-19 treatments and
purchase additional personal protective equipment to
keep hospital team members safe and healthy. "
The COVID-19 Response Fund was established to meet
caregivers' needs throughout the pandemic. Support of
the fund has an immediate impact on physicians, nurses,
and staff by supporting the purchase of equipment,
medication, and other items. To date more than 14,000
procedure masks, 6,000 N95 masks, 60,000 latex free
gloves, 2,640 liters of hand sanitizer, and one of the
two UVC disinfection robots at Reading Hospital have
been purchased with support from the Emergency
Response Fund.
