The yearlong pandemic has tried and tested health care workers on the front line—from nursing assistants at rehab facilities to emergency room doctors tending to critically ill patients. These Health Care Heroes—34 individuals and 25 teams—went beyond the call. Early on, they stepped up to care for COVID-19 patients when the risks weren’t fully understood. They scrambled to procure and distribute personal protective equipment, which was in short supply. Many treated patients, including homeless people, in the hardest-hit neighborhoods.

Managers immersed themselves in recommended protocols and treatments and educated their staffs. They bucked up their teams during the darkest days and worried about keeping their families safe. Brighter days arrived in December with the first batch of vaccines, and health care workers say opening those first vials marked a turning point. Some of the heroes have taken on extra duty to get Chicagoans inoculated and pave the way for the pandemic’s end.

When COVID-19 hit, Dr. Lauren Zalay encountered a devastating issue with the lack of availability of PPE. So she organized and coordinated securing PPE for her office, plus other dental and health care offices around the city and across the country. Zalay worked with a Chicago-area philanthropist to manufacture and secure PPP of all types for healthcare workers and continues that mission to this day. She donated nearly all of her office’s PPE to Northwestern Memorial Hospital and charitable organizations working on front lines across the city.

Zalay, a general dentist with University Associates in Dentistry, appeared on local media to inform healthcare professionals that PPE was available. Her relentless pursuit of protecting healthcare workers allowed Frontline workers and other health professionals to Rusty’s he, knowing that they were protected and safe in doing their jobs.
