MILFORD, CT — When times are tough, heroes emerge. We all know someone who's making a difference right now as we live through unprecedented and changing times.
Here at Patch, we've launched an initiative to help recognize these heroes making a difference in their communities. Together with Ring, we’re working to let all your neighbors know about these outstanding people and their stories.
This submission comes from Elizabeth Honcharik who nominated Andrew Baldovin of Milford.
Hero's job: Health Care
Relationship to nominee: Significant other
Reason for recognition: Since the start of the pandemic, Andrew had been tirelessly working on the COVID-19 unit as a cardiac-pulmonary Registered Nurse. He has maintained cool, calm and nurturing throughout the crisis, despite witnessing more deaths in these months than his entire (career).
One thing to know: It takes a special soul to be a RN (especially during COVID-19) and Northern Westchester hospital should be proud to call Andrew their employee- he sure fits the bill!
