After 24 days of being treated for COVID-19 at Piedmont Medical Center, eight days of rehabilitation and a continuous outpouring of support and love from family, friends and coworkers, Pearl Lemieux has touched the lives of many.

As she left the hospital, her care team and hospital staff lined the halls cheering her on. Pearl waved and thanked everyone for their compassionate care. Countless people welcomed Pearl as she exited the hospital doors for this first time since she was admitted - holding signs like “You are one tough cookie!” and “You are a hero!”

Mostly, Pearl’s care team is just glad she is back at home with her family. Pearl’s strength and persistence is an inspiration to all.
