As the pandemic escalated, determining the need for healthcare resources such as beds, staff, and equipment became a top priority. Healthcare institutions also needed to project future demands that required estimates of how long a patient with COVID-19 may need in-patient care.

Travis D. Landt

After a courageous and long battle with physical and mental health illness, the pain and darkness Travis endured became unbearable and he tragically took his own life. 

Yet his dark days will not stop us from remembering the days of light.

Travis was the oldest of two sets of siblings; he never believed in the words half or step. Family was family. He was extremely proud of his siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews.
