COLORADO SPRINGS — Health care workers across our country deserve our praise and thanks for what they are doing to deal with this coronavirus pandemic. Any hospital would welcome thank you cards or messages of support and appreciation for their staff.

UCHealth has set up a dedicated webpage [CLICK HERE] so people can send written messages of love and support. If you want to record a video on your phone, tablet or computer, there is an option at the bottom of the page to upload a video message.

Denver Broncos General Manager and President John Elway tweeted out his message of support saying, “I just want to thank everyone at UCHealth. The doctors, the nurses, the support staff, and the medical staff and all you’re doing to get us through these difficult times. I know it's a stress on you, and your families. Thank you so much, and we will get through this together.”

Former Bronco safety Nick Ferguson recorded a message that said, “I want to thank all the doctors, nurses and employees who are working around the clock at UCHealth to try and help us get through the current situation. I understand that you're doing all you can. Keep it up and together we can get through this. Mile high salute to you guys!”

Former quarterback Peyton Manning also sent along his thoughts in a video message. “I want to send a heartfelt message of appreciation to all the doctors, nurses and staff at UCHealth. You are all working endless hours to keep us safe and healthy. I can't imagine how we would make it through this without you. Please know that all of you are in my prayers and you have my gratitude, and that of an entire community. Stay safe, stay strong, and thank you again for your tremendous work and efforts.”

By no means do you have to be a celebrity to send a meaningful message of support that will help the healthcare workers on the frontlines of this health crisis and those who support them. Hand written notes from young children have been dropped off at UCHealth Memorial Hospital Central with messages that say, “Not all heroes wear capes - some wear masks” and “Dear all hospital, thanks for all your help and courage.”
