McLaren Flint shared the following message:

It is with deep sadness that I share with you the loss of one of our own due to the coronavirus. Patrick Cain, a Registered Nurse from the ICU, passed away over the weekend due to complications related to coronavirus. Our deepest sympathies go out to Patrick’s family, friends, and immediate co-workers during this incredibly difficult time.

McLaren President and CEO Chad Grant said he would also like to recognize the efforts of the team who cared for Patrick. He said “Frontline health care workers here in Genesee County and around the world are courageously battling coronavirus and helping many to recover. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of caregivers everywhere, some patients will succumb to the virus throughout this pandemic. “

The hospital said they will have a team in place to support staff coping with Patrick’s loss.
