Healthcare Heroes

In March of 2021, the Suffolk County Legislature approved a resolution sponsored by Legislator Anthony Piccirillo to establish an annual initiative to recognize a healthcare hero from each legislative district every June, which in 2020 was designated as Healthcare Heroes Month to acknowledge the inspiring and selfless contributions of Suffolk County’s frontline health workers. Starting this year and continuing every year moving forward, healthcare heroes from each legislative district will be publicly recognized through a legislative pronouncement in June for their contributions in serving the healthcare needs of their community.

Legislators have selected a healthcare hero from their respective legislative districts to be honored at the June 22, 2021 General Meeting. Over the past 15 months, these health workers have been caring for others during a time of great uncertainty and tremendous challenges. They are true lifesavers, role models and heroes.
