COVID-19 Survivor Celebrates Mother's Day at Home with Family

Mary was one of Greater El Monte Community Hospital’s first COVID-19 patients. She spent 33 days at Greater El Monte. The day of her discharge, she commented that as she was being wheeled out of her room she began to notice all the health care providers standing on the hallway and realized this was all for her. She said it was a beautiful gesture and her heart was full and so grateful. She considers herself very lucky to have survived this illness and believes God gave her a second chance. She asked everyone to take this virus very seriously because she was so careful at all times and she still got infected. She was able to celebrate Mother’s Day with her two children and husband. She attributes her health and life to all the nurses and physicians of Greater El Monte Community Hospital.

She was featured on Univision to share her story.
