UMRC & Porter Hills Participates in White Ribbon Initiative Honoring “Healthcare Heroes”

CHELSEA, MI/GRAND RAPIDS, MI–At UMRC & Porter Hills, our direct care team members are there to provide care and comfort for the older adults we serve. Especially now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, these “Healthcare Heroes” are doing everything in their power to keep our residents safe and healthy.  These include our caregivers, dining services, housekeeping, and environmental services team members.

Our care teams are here for us. Now, it’s our turn to be here for them. Show your appreciation of our Healthcare Heroes by displaying a white ribbon outside your home or place a white ribbon image in your front window.
