After Governor Ducey’s executive order paused elective surgery in Arizona hospitals, five nurses from the surgical services department at Abrazo Central Campus became available to help fill other needs. This Phoenix Five then decided to volunteer to support Tenet sister hospitals in Detroit, which had recently become a hotspot for the virus. They were later joined by nurses from Abrazo Arrowhead Campus and Abrazo West Campus.

“The employees and the community are so thankful,” Caryn Huffman, RN, emailed to her coworkers back in Phoenix. “Others are offering their services for anything we might need while we are here.”
