For more than a century, Lakeland Regional Health has been a vital part of the community providing essential services and life-saving care to so many in and around the Lakeland area. As a citizen of this great community and the current chairman of the board of Lakeland Regional Health, I want to express my deep gratitude to the organization and all of its employees.


During this very unique and challenging time, I have had the privilege to witness and learn about so many compassionate and selfless acts of caring for patients both in the Medical Center and in the outpatient locations. The innovative and proactive steps taken by this organization and its team members to provide COVID-19 care and treatment, including testing opportunities, are a testament to what this not-for-profit healthcare organization means for our local residents.


In this time of great uncertainty when so many are facing circumstances they never expected to face, let us continue to support our local hospital and health system in its efforts to keep the virus in check, to care for those affected and to help our community heal.


Thank you, Lakeland Regional Health, for how you have cared for our community over the years. Thank you.


Weymon Snuggs, chairman of the board, Lakeland Regional Health, Lakeland
