On Thursday, April 16, Emergency Responders of La Porte County brought a First Responder parade to Franciscan Health Michigan City to show appreciation for our healthcare workers. They dropped off “first responder” cookies for hospital staff. The parade went on to La Porte Hospital as well.

Franciscan Health Michigan City President and CEO Dean Mazzoni said, “The outpouring of support from the community has been incredible. And to have our staff recognized by law enforcement and fire, who are also on the front lines keeping us safe is especially poignant.”

“I’m very thankful to the first responders for their support of those on the frontline during this challenging time,” said Vice President of Operations Trish Weber, whose husband is a fire captain. “They put their lives on the line all the time, so it’s a camaraderie. We thank them for all they do and we thank their families for sharing them.”
