UTICA, N.Y. – In honor of doctors, nurses and other essential staff, the city of Utica hung ‘Healthcare Heroes’ flags Tuesday in front of various medical facilities.

“Our local health care workers are on the front lines in combatting the coronavirus pandemic and it is imperative we do everything we can to show our gratitude and appreciation,” said Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri. “The best way to honor our health care workers is to continue to observe the guidelines from public health professionals, and I urge our community to do so.”

The flags were placed in front of St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, the Faxton campus and Slocum-Dickson Medical Group, by Mark Sokolowski from the city of Utica Sign Shop.
