CEMEX USA and Orlando Health have recently unveiled a new blue heart-shaped concrete monument and courtyard in appreciation of frontline healthcare workers at Orlando Health ¬– ¬Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Fla., for their extraordinary service, loyalty and commitment to their patients and community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Representatives from CEMEX USA and Orlando Health recently held a special ceremony at the site, observing proper physical distancing guidelines, to dedicate the monument and courtyard. CEMEX USA donated and poured approximately 15 yards of white concrete for the courtyard and a specialty blue concrete to create the light-blue heart monument, a symbol of love and support for healthcare workers. The heart is the focus of a new courtyard and seating area outside a hospital entrance utilised daily by healthcare workers at Orlando Health – Health Central Hospital.

“Our frontline healthcare workers are essential in the fight against COVID-19, and they are doing all they can to help keep people in the community safe,” said CEMEX USA Regional President – Florida Region, Jeff Bobolts. “At CEMEX USA, we are committed to health and safety with protocols in place aimed at stopping the spread of COVID-19. With this courtyard and blue heart, we wanted to show the frontline healthcare workers we appreciate their hard work and thank them for their outstanding dedication to their patients and community during this extremely difficult time.”

General Contractor, Edwards Concrete Company, and Bruns, Inc., designed and constructed the project. Parkforms, Inc., and Allen and Company, Inc., donated two benches for the courtyard, while The College Companies and Florida Fence Products provided the railing surrounding the project. BrightView Landscape Development supplied the landscaping to additionally improve the space.

“We’re always appreciative when members of our community take the time to acknowledge the efforts of our team members,” said Mark Marsh, President of Orlando Health – Health Central Hospital. “This new monument and courtyard will not only serve as a reminder of the important work being done here daily but will also provide our team members a quiet place just outside our hospital doors to relax and reflect.”
