Sign Gypsies recognizes work of doctors, nurses with large sign

On Thursday, a sign was placed outside the EAMC-Lanier Hospital thanking the workers for the work they have been doing during the coronavirus outbreak.

The sign, which was donated by Sign Gypsies of Valley, read “Heroes Work Here” and was placed in front of the hospital so all workers could see it when they drove into work.

“We are so proud of all our employees. They show up for work willing and ready to do what is necessary to help others. We really do appreciate all they do for our patients and for each other,” RN and Infection Control Manager at EAMC-Lanier hospital Hollie Story said in an email.

Sign Gypsies is owned by Ashely and Andy Jackson. Ashley works in the hospital as a radiology tech in the imaging department.

“It is through acts of kindness just like this that help make it easier for all of those standing united for their community,” Director of business development Cindy Brooks said.

Sign Gypsies said they wanted to find a way to recognize the medical professionals on the front lines, combatting COVID-19 every day.

“We felt like they were all heroes and they deserved a shout out,” said Andy Jackson.

The sign was a surprise to workers when they came into work on Thursday.

“Everyone was extremely surprised at the sign and greatly appreciated it,” Jackson said.
