Sometimes we get caught up in the rigors of life, the stresses at work and the never-ending to-do list. But with the recent tragic events caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas, we are reminded what is important – family, friends, health, and happiness. As a healthcare technology company supporting the everyday workflow and documentation of nurses and nursing leaders across the country, we have many friends and colleagues in the hurricane’s path and we wish them “Godspeed” and safety to start the journey back.
Over this past week, I have paused many times to appreciate fresh potable water, clean clothes, family photos around me, my comfortable home, and the ability to get into my car, purchase gas, and drive wherever I choose. How often do we take these simple things for granted and forget to show our gratitude by giving back to others?
I applaud JJ Watts for starting the fund that has already raised over $13 million dollars in hurricane relief. I am trying to do my small part by rounding up at the grocery store to benefit the victims, donating online to the American Red Cross, and signing up to donate blood next week.
The needs won’t stop for months to come. Many have lost everything but the clothes on their backs. Our mission at Nobl Health is to go above and beyond for our clients, driven by my amazing, generous Nobl colleagues. I challenge you today – How will you help?
