An anonymous donor sent a note with a $1 million donation to Dignity Health Dominican hospital in Santa Cruz last week. The note read: "Thank you for standing up (and staying up!) to care for our community. This humankindness is what makes you heroic."
The donation was designated entirely for employees -- nurses, cleaning staff, lab techs, medical records, even mailroom staff and security guards who have worked at Dominican Hospital for at least a year are getting a bonus check. Full-time staff get $800, part-timers receive $600.
Nursing supervisor Amy Loudon said: "There are so many people who keep the hospital running. Nurses and doctors are getting the praise, but we couldn't do it without the staff who clean the floors, deliver supplies, fix machines, everything. It's a team, and I'm glad the whole team is getting a thank you," she said.
