Methodist Health Care Workers Help Lead the Fight Against COVID-19

Ruben Sanchez Sr.

Across the state, thousands of health care workers have cared for Nebraskans ill with COVID-19. Supporting them have been thousands more people — public health workers tracking the virus’s spread, lab workers who run tests on weekends and holidays, and researchers developing tests and treatments.

In a year unlike any other in the past century, the Omaha World-Herald honors all the health care workers who are battling the pandemic. They are the newspaper’s Midlanders of the Year for 2020.

Among those featured by the World-Herald: KC Humphrey, an occupational therapist at Methodist Hospital, and Ruben Sanchez Sr., a  cleaning technician at Methodist Hospital.
