In this particularly challenging year, let’s take time this holiday season to reflect on all the things we have to be grateful for – our families, friends and colleagues, the compassion and devotion we see all around us every day.

Mount Nittany Health is a very special place, with a team whose service to our community should make us all very proud. Our team has stayed strong this year, working tirelessly and with great skill. We know our community counts on us at times like these and we are committed to living up to that trust.

We could not do it without the support of our community: you and others who have been thoughtful and generous, with your kind messages and cards and gifts ranging from cash to PPE to food.

Your support has filled important needs and it has shown that you are standing with us. Even as the pandemic continues, we remain strong, with protocols in place that enable us to be flexible to meet the community’s needs as they evolve. We will continue to meet those needs whatever COVID brings our way – and beyond, as eventually, we all return to more normal routines.

Thank you again for your support of all of us. I wish you and yours a safe and happy holiday season.

Kathleen Rhine
