CEO Rocha noted that effective Monday, May 15th masks will be strongly recommended but optional for many patients, visitors and staff.

The Community Murals Project unveiled three new murals at Provident Hospital, Blue Island Health Center and the Professional Building on central campus. Paint parties were held where patients, staff and visitors came together to paint sections of the murals.
