COVID-19 has changed how we live our lives. Many of us are working remotely. Some of our kids are learning virtually. And we’re all depending on technology to help us stay connected. This demonstrates that we didn’t let this pandemic stop us from doing what’s important. We found a way to do them safely.
By: Karen Thompson, Enterprise Communications The July 4 holiday weekend will probably be different this year for many people. Many fireworks displays and other festive gatherings have been canceled due to a resurgence of COVID-19. Recent data shows a sharp increase in the numbers of positive COVID-19 cases in several areas of the country—including Florida, where the largest numbers of GuideWell team members reside. This surge has led some cities in Florida and other states where we do business to reverse some of the previous reopening actions and mandate face masks.
GuideWell Mutual Holding Corporation (GuideWell), the parent to a family of forward-thinking companies focused on transforming health care; Florida Blue, the state’s leading health insurer; and Florida Blue Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Florida Blue, today announced $25 million in investments over five years to organizations focused on diversity and inclusion and health equity in the communities the organizations serve.
A Letter from President and CEO Pat Geraghty: "All of us have a duty to speak up and stand against injustice."
Dear GuideWell employees:Last Monday, we observed Memorial Day, the holiday when Americans honor the men and women who have died defending our country’s ideals serving in the U.S. military. And last Monday, George Floyd’s tragic, shocking death reminded us all that our country has a long way to go before its central promise of equality becomes reality. Last week and all weekend, the country reeled in pain and protest at George Floyd’s death, and with anger and frustration at the racism and inequality people of color still experience in America every day.
COVID-19 has the potential to change many things for the health care industry and for the way we operate.
As a mission-driven, health solutions enterprise, we feel a strong responsibility to our members and our communities, especially now.
Another week has come and gone in our temporary new normal. As a health solutions enterprise committed to helping people and communities achieve better health, we remain focused on ensuring that our employees, members, and communities feel supported as theynavigate this pandemic.
