JFL Illuminated in Honor of National Day of Mourning for COVID-19 Victims

On Tuesday, January 19, 2021 at 6:00 p.m., the Governor Juan F. Luis Hospital & Medical Center (“JFL”) will be illuminated in honor of the 24 Virgin Islanders lost to COVID-19 and their families.

The Governor Juan F. Luis Hospital & Medical Center joins President-elect Biden in a “national moment of unity and remembrance” for the lives of those whom we have lost due to this virus by illuminating both JFL and the entrance for JFL North. Similar to lighting a candle, the illumination of the building represents hope and a brighter tomorrow.

According to Interim CEO Dyma Williams, “At JFL, we continue to navigate our way through the sorrow brought on by the onset of the global COVID-19 Pandemic. COVID-19 has drastically changed the provision of patient care. Despite this dynamic change, we are steadfast in our goal to provide compassionate care for every patient and their families during their most vulnerable time. To the families of the victims, we hope that the memories of the moments shared with your loved ones bring you great comfort. We also hope that you would view this evening’s display as a small show of support from the JFL Family to you during your time of mourning.”
