Documentary Featuring SSM Health Medical Teams To Air Thursday

(Fond du Lac) A documentary airing Thursday will share the story of SSM Health and its team’s work throughout the pandemic. The 60-minute show titled “Behind the Mask” will be broadcasted from 7pm to 8pm on NBC-TV affiliate stations. SSM Health President and CEO Laura Kaiser says the documentary calls everyone to remember those lost and those who are still suffering. The greater Fond du Lac area was one of the first in Wisconsin to begin care for individuals with COVID. SSM Health officials say this meant staff had to be innovate and charter uncertain waters. St. Agnes Hospital President Katherine Vergos says from the very start, they collaborated with their partners at the Fond du Lac County Health Department bringing forward innovate ways to address this crises. She says caregivers stepped up to the plate and continue to do so to this day. The film, which will be narrated by Hall of Fame Broadcaster Bob Costas, will be featured on SSM Health internal and external websites.
