The last several years, especially 2021, can be defined as a year of partnerships and perseverance. We know now, more than ever before, than we can conquer any challenge if we work together. Our hospitals continued to step up and ready their operations to accommodate the relentless threat of the pandemic. The countless health care professionals and those who support our hospitals continue to do exceptional work every day across the District of Columbia. As an association, we are so proud of the extraordinary ways our hospitals have demonstrated new levels of collaboration.
