51st annual lighting of the tree atop Lovelace Medical Center

Lovelace Health System celebrated its 51st annual lighting of the tree atop Lovelace Medical Center on December 2 by gathering with Lovelace Medical Center employees for a moment of silence in honor of the lives lost from COVID-19.
 
 
This tree is dedicated in remembrance of patients who succumbed to COVID-19. Employees were given ornaments to write a personal message to our patients and their families and then they placed the ornaments on the tree.
 
We honor our employees for the dedication, sacrifice and compassion they have given to our patients and their families.
 
This is the time for us to reflect on the past year and to look forward to the future. We at Lovelace look toward a new year full of hope, health and safety and to continue to provide the highest quality of care to our community!
