University Hospitals Samaritan Medical Center is hosting a Day of Remembrance & Resilience on June 27 at 7:00pm to remember those who lost their lives to COVID-19 while also uplifting those who have recovered from the virus and honoring first responders and essential workers who helped their communities during the pandemic. Everyone in Ashland County and surrounding communities is invited to join us. (June 27 marks the date of the first recorded death from COVID in Ashland County in 2020.) 218 Ashland county residents have lost their lives to COVID-19 and there have been more than 12,165 (and counting) cases.
The ceremony will take place in the West Parking lot of the hospital (1025 Center Street) – look for the white tent.
Please park in the Dale Roy parking lot (1256 Center Street). Only handicapped individuals will be permitted to park in the main hospital parking lot to ensure our patients’ visitors and families have adequate parking. And please do not park on surrounding streets as that space will be reserved for EMS, fire and law enforcement.
