More Information

Q: Why is he a HealthCare Hero?

As the pandemic struck, the healthcare industry asked for unprecedented fortitude, flexibility, compassion and hard work. Dr. Rampal took this immense challenge and brought to the chaotic times what it needed most — solutions to problems that the world had never faced.

He and his team worked around the clock to come up with ways to treat, test and vaccinate. He and his teammates have vaccinated, treated and immunized thousands in the community and continue to do so.

He left no avenue unexplored, including going to patients’ houses, community centers and nursing homes to provide care to those who needed it most.

Q: How has COVID-19 changed the way you do your job?

It forced me to become a more flexible and innovative person and manager. This has been an unprecedented time, requiring out-of-the-box thinking to solve the challenges that came with it. I have stopped saying to myself and my team that something is not possible — it’s always, “How can we make it possible.”
