Mike Storey, CRNA, North Shore Medical Center (NSMC), battled COVID alongside his wife. He went back to work as soon as medically possible, and immediately turned to treating COVID patients.
Back in July, Mike said "Hopefully, things will continue to get better and our society will get back to "normal". But if it doesn't and we have a spike in cases, I am certain that my colleagues and I will be able to pull together and do a great job for our patients like we always do."
Unfortunately things didn't get better right away. Being a man of his word, Mike once again delivered outstanding care. In addition to Mike's job at NSMC, he is a member of the US Dept. HHS Disaster Medical Assistance Team (DMAT). With his DMAT colleagues, Mike went above and beyond to make things "normal", as he was deployed to Lake Charles, LA and El Centro, CA to support other hospitals facing a COVID surge.
For those who know Mike, this type of service comes as no surprise. Mike is the former President of MANA and always steps up for his patients and our profession, demonstrating the very best qualities of any health care professional.
MANA is proud to call Mike a colleague. Enjoy the spotlight, Mike!
