At New York Presbyterian Hospital in Queens health care workers are captured on video draped in protective gear dancing and cheering to the song ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ as they wheel out two patients being discharged after beating the coronavirus

“As a message of hope during these challenging times, #NYPQueens plays Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” throughout the hospital each time a #COVID19 patient is discharged and on the road to recovery,” 
– Statement from NYP Queens Hospital

The song has been utilized by healthcare workers across the country as motivation and hope as they work tirelessly on the front lines of the pandemic.

“Every patient discharge gives hope to New York-Presbyterian Queens staff. They are encouraged to see their patients recovering and going home,”
– Jaclyn Mucaria, president of New York-Presbyterian Queens

The lead singer, Steve Perry, of Journey put out a tweet about the use of the song as a ray of hope

“I wanted to share a little cheer from New York Presbyterian Queens Hospital in NY. They play “Don’t Stop Believin’” every time a COVID-19 patient is discharged,. We’re all in this together, and we’ll get through this together. #DontStopBelievin.”

In Michigan Henry Ford Hospital plays the song daily throughout the hospital to motivate all those who are fighting the coronavirus pandemic

“The song is a sign of hope, a reminder to patients to never give up and a motivational thank-you to tired, never-stop-trying team members,”
“Don’t Stop Believin'” was chosen because the “days can be long and hard and come with many losses and unprecedented stress.”
