François Quenot in De garde 24/7

Back to intensive care

In September, for the first time since his discharge in June, François Quenot, accompanied by his wife, came to thank in person the Intensive Care Unit’s staff.

Without your support, the HMR and its teams would not have been ready to face this pandemic. Without your generosity, the Intensive Care Unit staff would not have had the equipment or access to the training required to adapt to the situation in a timely manner.

Your solidarity has made a difference in the past, it makes the difference today in the face of the pandemic, and it will make the difference again tomorrow.

Thank you for contributing to the Together for the HMR Fund!
