Twelve USPI nurses from Lone Star Endoscopy’s various locations in Texas offered to help New York hospitals manage through the pandemic. For Charlie Adams, RN, the chaos she had witnessed seemed insurmountable, yet she remained motivated due in large part to the resilient nursing team she works alongside.

"People are just rallying together to come up with everything they can to save these patients and it's really inspiring to see these people from all over the world, all over the country, that have never met each other working to save peoples’ lives. It just keeps me going really,” shared Charlie.
