Code Strong

Saint Vincent Hospital
Worcester, Massachusetts
Code Strong-min

Saint Vincent Hospital implemented a “Code Strong” for its COVID-19 patients, which celebrates their recovery with a cheerful ceremony as they are being discharged.

Saint Vincent’s caregivers and staff were so excited to celebrate success stories of patients who return home to their loved-ones after battling this virus.

For one 25-year-old patient who recovered, Worcester Fire made a unique visit to Saint Vincent Hospital to fulfill a special wish of his.

When his care team was preparing for his departure from the hospital, they asked him if he would like the ceremonial “Code Strong” that the hospital puts on for COVID survivors. He asked for a fire truck to be present, and without hesitation, Worcester Fire came to the rescue -- a true testament to their dedication to the community.
