Veterans Day 2021: Thanking BJC’s health care heroes for their military service
Military veterans working across BJC are heroes on many fronts. On Veterans Day, BJC will thank those health care heroes serving in all roles across the system for also having served their country.
All BJC team members are invited to join a virtual Veterans Day celebration to honor military veterans and current service members from 12-1 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 11. The event will feature a national anthem performance by Anthony Perry, supply distribution supervisor at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, and a panel discussion with veterans who now serve BJC’s patients and communities. Each hospital and service organization will also thank veterans locally.
UPDATE: The RSVP window has closed, but all team members can still join the event at www.BJC.org/ConnectionsEvents from noon-1 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 11. Team members who RSVP’d for the celebration will receive additional details about joining the event and local recognition activities. If you didn’t RSVP, you are still welcome to tune in to the virtual celebration. If you are a veteran or current service member who missed the RSVP deadline, please email [email protected].
RSVP for the celebration by Oct. 29. Registrants will receive details about how to join the virtual celebration closer to the event date. BJC team members can access the RSVP link from any device and will need to log in with their BJC network ID and password (and Duo, if off the network). Please note: You must obtain approval from your direct manager or supervisor before RSVP’ing for the event.
If you are a military veteran or a current service member and are unable to attend the virtual celebration, use the RSVP form to share your contact information so you can receive details about how your hospital or service organization will honor veterans Nov. 11. You can also opt in to receive emails about future BJC Veterans Connection news and events.
Veterans bring unique experiences and perspectives to BJC’s team of 31,000 caregivers and are an asset to BJC’s mission and fulfilling Our BJC Values of Compassion, Respect, Excellence, Safety and Teamwork.
Celebrate military heroes
All team members can honor their family members and friends who served or currently serve in the military by posting a photo or tribute message in the Veterans Connection Yammer community. Show your support by Nov. 11, and you could receive a token of thanks! (Duo needed if off the network.)
