“Our community has been so supportive during this time,” Johnson said before turning attention to the medical professionals standing behind him in front of the hospital. Johnson said he and the hospital staff couldn’t thank the Stephens County public enough for the support to get them this far during the pandemic.
“The people behind me have fought hard,” Johnson said. “It has not always been easy but it’s certainly been worth it. What we’re here to do is care for this community. We cannot thank you enough for trusting us for that care. We’re here, we’re continuing to grow and to learn and to follow the things that you need us to do to keep our community safe and have the services you need for great healthcare.” On a local level, Stephens County has seen a total of 4,784 confirmed cases and 99 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic, as reported by Oklahoma State Department of Health on April 7, 2021. That number will update again April 14, 2021, with more current figures.
