Northwestern Medicine physicians used the power of music to lift the spirits of the staff at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital. General surgeon Dr. Anthony Altimari’s band Vital Signs was joined by hospital medicine physician Dr. Kiumars Moghadam, critical care physician Dr. Jeffrey Huml, and cardiologist Dr. Michelle C. Montpetit for a concert in the courtyard of the Winfield, Illinois hospital. The band, who appropriately stood six feet apart and wore PPE, played a concert for the countless staff members who report to work every day at the hospital to care for patients, with a special thank you to the ICU nurses and technicians.

“We’re so grateful for the unbelievable nurses and staff at Central DuPage Hospital during this unprecedented time and hope that this concert lifts their spirits,” says Anthony F. Altimari, MD. “They’ve gone above and beyond to provide exceptional care to all of our patients.”

The physicians sang emotional tunes including Hallelujah, Lean on Me, and Amazing Grace, but also got the staff moving with fun tunes including Riptide and Margaritaville. 

In addition, the Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital Medical Staff provided lunch and delivered Easter Lilies to hospital workers.
