Spire Motorsports No. 7 Chevrolet driven by Corey LaJoie will proudly display a banner honoring nurses at the Mary Washington Health Clinic with a sign “MWHC Nurses” over the passenger side window during the 250-lap Food City Dirt Race at Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee March 28th. The sponsorship comes as a move by Caregility, a company dedicated to delivering care to wherever the patient is located through the use of the Caregility Virtual Care Platform.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has produced nearly daily challenges in the healthcare industry and the nurses at MWHC have risen to the challenge every step of the way,” stated Caregility CEO Ron Gaboury. “We’re proud to be able to recognize their efforts and are excited to see them honored at the race.”

MWHC, a 120-year old institution that has emerged into a modern not-for-profit regional healthcare system with two hospitals, three emergency rooms, and over 40 outpatient facilities and wellness services, is a partner of Caregility’s, utilizing the Caregility Virtual Care Platform to bring healthcare services to their patients. Faced with the COVID-19 pandemic, the nurses at MWHC came together to form a plan to safely care for their patients. As hospitalizations increased, the nurses adapted to continue providing excellent care while also creating additional capacity to ensure everyone needing care in their community was able to receive it. With their focus on their patients, the MWHC nurses have worked diligently to administer Covid-19 vaccinations to over 70,000 members of their local communities at the MWHC vaccine clinic.
