CORAL SPRINGS, FL – The photos say it all.
Coral Springs firefighters, police officers, elected officials, and many others stood Friday at the entrance to Broward Health Coral Springs and thanked hospital workers for taking care of patients during the coronavirus crisis.
Standing in the rain and six-feet apart, dozens of city and hospital staff clapped, cheered and held signs, including one that read: “Our Community Thanks You For Your Service.”
In the crowd was Coral Springs Mayor Scott Brook.
"These workers are truly heroes, taking risks to protect us every day. God bless them. We can’t thank them enough," he said.
Coral Springs joins Margate, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Jupiter and many other cities in South Florida and across the nation in honoring healthcare workers who are often called “caregivers” for risking their own health in treating patients with COVID-19.
