Centura Health Launches Campaign to Help Flatten the Curve
Featuring Nurses and Providers from the Frontlines, “Let’s Have Each Other’s Backs” Focuses on Uniting to Help Save Lives
Video, Audio & Interviews Available
(CENTENNIAL, COLO.) Nine months have passed since Colorado’s and Kansas’s first confirmed COVID-19 case, and despite efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus and flatten the curve, we now find ourselves in a critical second surge of the pandemic across our two states.
Centura Health and its incredible people on a mission to build whole person care and flourishing communities launched their second COVID-19 PSA campaign since April called “Let’s have each other’s backs.”
Featuring Centura caregivers on the frontlines every day, the stories and voices in the campaign are daily reminders and witness to the severity of the COVID-19 illness. Like you, our 21,000 associates and physicians are moms, dads, grandparents, grandchildren and your neighbors, and they continue to give of themselves to be there when you need us most. COVID-19 has taken a tremendous toll on Colorado and Kansas communities, and we must work together to change the dangerous course which we are on together today.
There is a lot of talk about the pandemic and individuals are growing weary of the limitations associated with the disease in our community. Allison Boerner, a Charge Nurse in the Emergency Department at Centura-Parker Adventist Hospital and featured in the campaign shares, “As your neighbor and your friend, I can assure you that COVID-19 is incredibly real. We are asking you, please join with us in flattening the curve and help us save lives by wearing your mask, staying six feet apart, washing your hands, and avoiding gatherings with those outside your household.”
The campaign launched November 23 and will be featured in TV, streaming video, radio, streaming audio, digital/online display, and social media display.
Interviews may be arranged with those featured in the campaign, including the following:
- Allison Boerner, RN, Charge Nurse, ER, Parker Adventist Hospital
- Kolene Bailey, MD, Critical Care Pulmonary
- Laura Stonecipher, CNA, Med. Surge, Parker Adventist Hospital
- Paige Cunningham, RN Clinical Coordinator; St. Anthony Hospital
Centura has also joined national hospitals and health systems, including its two Sponsors – AdventHealth and CommonSpirit Health – and other Colorado health systems in support of the #MaskUp public education campaign (www.everymaskup.com).
