BayCare 2020 Report to the Community
BayCare exists to support our community’s health – even during a global pandemic. The year 2020 tested our communities and its institutions, but BayCare Health System continued, even amid such a tumultuous year, to adapt and evolve to prepare to serve our communities. Learn more about how the region’s leading not-for-profit health care system cared for the community during 2020 and the plans it made for the years to come.
As 2020 began, BayCare was working on a full slate of initiatives for the year. Then COVID-19 arrived. And so much changed.
Dr. John Masson, a pulmonary and critical care specialist at BayCare's Morton Plant Hospital, talks about the professional and personal challenges that confronted physicians, and how he and his colleagues at BayCare worked together to fight back against COVID-19, a virus none of them had seen until March 2020.
