Not all heroes wear capes, in fact, some of them are caught wearing scrubs and hospital badges.

After nearly losing her life to severe COVID-19 complications, 56-year-old Maureen Woods, feels lucky to be alive today. Due to being critically ill throughout much of her hospital stay, she feels she never got a chance to properly thank the team who saved her life. But on October 12th, she got the chance to wrap her arms around the heroes who gave her a second chance.

On July 24th, Woods was admitted to the hospital for painful kidney stones when she tested positive for COVID-19. Her condition rapidly declined. She developed pneumonia, a blood infection, a collapsed lower lung, and her body went into total organ failure as she lapsed into a coma for nearly three weeks.

After 40 days at Orlando Health – Health Central, and 12 days at an inpatient rehab, Woods was discharged to return home happy and healthy to her family members who missed her desperately.

Thank you to all our medical heroes who have gone above and beyond to ensure people like Maureen return home safe to their families. You all are the real MVPs.
