Thank You, Health Care Heroes

We are grateful for the dedication, compassion and bravery of all our UC San Diego Health team members.

Every day through this pandemic, they continue to serve patients at the bedside and beyond. From filling pharmacy orders to cleaning and sanitizing rooms, from providing meals to comforting families, from maintaining equipment to pursuing lifesaving research, our team members excel both on the front lines and behind the scenes.

We join with the entire San Diego community to say a heartfelt thank you for their sacrifices and commitment to excellence.

We're proud to share their stories — and offer ways to share your gratitude — below.
