National Guard Success Story

How Loretto and the National Guard Provided Relief to the Central New York Healthcare System During the Coronavirus Pandemic

The New York State Department of Health sent National Guard members to Loretto in response to Governor Hochul’s leadership to provide relief to local hospitals at the height of the COVID-19 Pandemic in December 2021. With additional support from the National Guard members, acting as Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), Loretto doubled admissions to its skilled nursing facility in two and a half weeks, providing critical relief to the local health care infrastructure.
