This Place Matters Photo Contest
We are grateful for the many submissions to our annual This Place Matters! photo contest. We received heartwarming images of Greenwich residents coming together in support of each other, rallying, speaking out, pitching in, and offering support, reassurance, serenity and small glimpses of great joy in difficult circumstances. Thanks to Greenwich Magazine for selecting and featuring the winning photos in an upcoming issue!
On the front line
Respiratory therapist Jennyfer Ramirez wheels a ventilator through the intensive care unit where coronavirus patients are being treated at Greenwich Hospital in Greenwich, Conn. Thursday, May 14, 2020. Before the pandemic, she would typically see one to three patients per day, usually for relatively light regimens including oxygen assessments, nebulizer treatments and breathing therapy. By mid-March, Ramirez found herself providing a much higher level of care, often intubation, to as many as 15 patients per day and sometimes even more. "It was just going back and forth, back and forth, emergency after emergency,” she said. (Tyler Sizemore/Hearst Connecticut Media)
