ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Dozens of doctors and nurses cheered on staff at Highland Hospital as they entered work Wednesday morning in a show of support for healthcare heroes.

It was organized by some of Highland’s top doctors as a way to encourage employees and thank them for all their hard work during the pandemic.

"This has been the most trying time that I can remember since I’ve been in medicine for 35-40 years, but this is a time when healthcare workers pull together and do the right thing for patients," said Highland’s Chief of Medicine Dr. Robert McCann.

It was planned for 7 a.m. Wednesday so they could catch people both leaving from the night shift and those arriving for the morning shift.
