• Many thanks for all of the SMJH for patient care in every aspect of daily commitment. All of you are heroes serving daily in a most challenging time of our lives. God bless each and all of the support of the community for their outpouring support in these difficult times.

• Your hospital team took care of me when I lived in Cville.
I live in RVA now but still get your updates. Y'all are the most caring and compassionate physicians I've come had the pleasure of knowing. Greene and UVA are in my heart as well. When Drs say "if you just need to talk give us a call". Those were in better days but that shows you how much your community of physicians cares.
Thank you for making a difference.

• Thank you to all the Nurses and Doctors in the Cancer Care Center who have provided the most wonderful and extraordinary care and treatment to my niece, Raleigh Minor, before and during the coronavirus. They show their exceptionalism daily even while putting their own lives in jeopardy. The "Caring Tradition" is alive and well at Martha Jefferson. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
—Carol H. Minetree

• As a volunteer, I know how hard you all work in normal times — now in these trying times, your dedication to your patients is so above & beyond anything that could have been imagined — just know that the community is grateful for the long hours you’re putting in & praying that you stay safe & well.

• I've always heard that becoming a doctor or nurse or other healthcare provider was a "calling" rather than a career choice. I have a new understanding of this distinction now as I watch you all put yourselves at risk to provide care to our patients. And I am in awe. I am so proud to be part of this SMJH broad community and so grateful to each and every one of you. Thank you.
—Carol Hurt

• How can we thank you? Words can't express the deep gratitude we have for all you are doing to help your patients and the community stay safe and healthy, while putting yourself at risk. You are all brave and courageous. You are a blessing to all of us.
With blessings and thanks,
—Ginnie and Pete Gillen

• We continue to be so grateful every day for the sacrifices you all are making. Thank you for putting your own health on the line and for caring for people in our community. You are truly heroes!
—Jon and Lauren Thompson

• To all team members at SMJH:
I wish to personally thank you for your brave, persistent, dedicated and courageous heroics during these difficult times. I did not really realize, until lately, how much it means to me to be able to serve your patients and how much all of the employees are a special part of my life. I miss you !
Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers - we will overcome this and be better for it.
Be safe and may God bless you,

• As a furloughed volunteer Concierge at Sentara Martha Jefferson in Charlottesville, I could not be prouder of the ER staff and health care workers on Cornell 2. On April 6 my husband suffered severe abdominal pain due to a bowel blockage. Although it was heart wrenching to leave him at a tent at the ER I was confident that he would receive excellent care. And I was right.He was evaluated, tested negative for Covid19, admitted and underwent surgery late that night. His surgeon, Dr. Gregg and all Cornell 2 staff took proper precautions for themselves and for him.
THANK YOU, you truly are heroes in our eyes.
—Susan Montgomery

• TO: Doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists and all supporting staff at Martha Jefferson. As a retired critical care nurse, I truly appreciate the work you are doing on the front lines day after day. The work is mentally and physically exhausting not to mention the threat to your loved ones and having to distance from them. I think of you and others all over the world who are fighting the battle on our behalf and pray for your safety and strength. We will never be able to thank you enough for your commitment to caring for those in need.
