The last 18 months have challenged us all as a global society. We’ve had to reimagine and rethink the way we socialize, learn and live – and at times, we’ve all felt the burden of the pandemic.  

But perhaps the most significant burden of the pandemic is the one placed on our healthcare providers and frontline workers.  

These courageous caregivers stepped in when case numbers were rising around the globe, and quickly pivoted to provide care to those most in need. When the world was forced to stay at home, providers adapted and found new ways of reaching patients virtually, like never before.  

And today, as we continue to address the impacts of the pandemic on all facets of our lives, healthcare providers are embracing the future of care and working to provide the best and most inclusive care experience for patients.  

Cisco is proud to recognize and support healthcare providers around the world doing extraordinary things during extraordinary times. You are our heroes, and we are grateful for the work you’ve done and the sacrifices you’ve made to keep us safe and healthy. It’s because of you that we are optimistic about the future of care and confident that together, with innovative technologies, we can move healthcare forward in times of change to power inclusive care for all. 

Now more than ever, we believe that technology can be used to provide an opportunity for all, make a meaningful impact, and bring about a future that is better and brighter than today. Cisco is “all in” on healthcare, and we are committed to best supporting you as you reimagine care for the future. 

To help recognize and celebrate some of the #EverydayHeroes in healthcare around the globe, we are honored to highlight three powerful stories of healthcare heroes. We invite you to watch the stories of these everyday heroes and be inspired by how these providers are making a positive impact in their communities around the globe, just like you.  

Once you’ve had the chance to watch the stories, we encourage you to share one of your own! Leave a comment below and tell us about an everyday healthcare hero in your life. 

As part of Cisco’s ongoing commitment to healthcare, we look forward to continuing to celebrate and share the stories of healthcare heroes around the world. Thank you, healthcare providers, again, for all that you do!
