LITTLETON, Colo. — First responders from 13 agencies honored Littleton Adventist Hospital workers Thursday morning with a parade of more than 40 emergency vehicles.

The parade began at 7 a.m. during the hospital's shift change.

“We'd just like them to know that we really appreciate the work that they do,” said Littleton Police Department spokesman Trent Cooper.

Littleton Adventist Hospital Nurse Manager Colleen Enriquez told Denver 7 that her team appreciated the gesture.

“All of our staff, they love it," Enriquez said. "They take pictures and videos and it really does warm everybody’s hearts."

The past couple of weeks have been hard for the Littleton Adventist Hospital staff.

“We have done things that we never imagined that we would do and that we hope we never have to do again,” Enriquez said. “First responders have been in this as much as we have and it’s so great just to have everybody come together.”

As healthcare workers continue to fight COVID-19, Enriquez told Denver7 the parade will help serve as a little motivation to keep going.
