Special acknowledgement & appreciation to Rush Copley
The Montgomery Economic Development Corporation would like to start this final edition of its 2020 Newsletter with an expression of gratitude to Rush Copley Medical Center and its staff for their constant and continued service to our community and region. As we have all struggled through this unprecedent year of 2020, Rush Copley has been on the front lines from the beginning, fighting this great battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. From Day One, Rush Copley has risen above and beyond to each and every challenge presented and roadblock placed in their way, all the while continuing to provide superb services. They continue to work tirelessly for us, bringing medical expertise and excellence to us in our own backyard. We are so very fortunate to have them with us, not only today, but as we walk together into our brighter future! Please join me in acknowledging the staff and management of this great organization, as well as read and share the attached document (click underlined link) so you can better understand the significant Impact they have had on our community and region. Thank you "Rush Copley" and Thanks to all "our healthcare heroes".
We would also like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. May the New Year bring us all a better and safer tomorrow, and hope of a brighter future.
