COLUMBUS, OH, June 22, 2021 – Mount Carmel today announced it will provide a $500 appreciation award to all colleagues across its hospitals and other health care locations in recognition of their contributions to the health system’s COVID-19 response. This is the second appreciation award Mount Carmel will provide colleagues as a thank you for their continued commitment and service to patients and fellow employees throughout the pandemic.

“As we reach the end of our fiscal year 2021, we are reflecting on everything Mount Carmel’s hard working and compassionate employees have accomplished through the pandemic,” said Mount Carmel President and CEO Lorraine Lutton. “Not only have they provided unwavering care for patients with COVID-19, but they moved with agility and speed to distribute the vaccine once it became available. We are proud and thankful for the commitment and service that our colleagues have demonstrated and are hopeful that this gesture will convey our appreciation.”

Throughout the pandemic, Mount Carmel and Trinity Health have provided more than one million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, both in the communities of its health ministries, as well as by partnering with outside organizations.

The appreciation award will be paid in July 2021 to all eligible employees.
