Local first responders offered their support to healthcare workers Thursday night by parking along the inner roads at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital and flashing their lights.

“At Owensboro Health, we were really excited when we heard this,” said OH Chief Medical Officer Francis DuFrayne during a Facebook Live session in which he showed a clip of line of vehicles. “This is an incredible show of support. We really thank everyone in the community.”

Kentucky State Police also joined local responders in showing up to thank the front-line workers inside.


“I am honored to be part of an Appreciation Caravan for our frontline healthcare workers tonight,” tweeted KSP Trooper Corey King. “To all those @OwensboroHealth, we recognize and salute your diligent efforts in helping our community!”

First responders also shined green lights from their phones in honor of those who have lost their lives to COVID-19.
