In Memoriam of Emira Barucija

The entire Salem Hospital community is mourning the tragic loss of Emira Barucija, a beloved member of our Environmental Service team since 2020.

Emira was well-liked by all who knew her. Her warmth, kind smile, and quiet, yet calming demeanor will be greatly missed.

Emira ensured that those around her felt appreciated and caring was in her nature, especially with her colleagues. Whether it was bringing someone a box of chocolates to brighten their day, or offering a warm friendly smile, she touched our hearts.

While in patients’ rooms, Emira always kept a keen eye on patients and would report to the nursing staff if she noticed anything amiss. This dedication and attention to detail made her an integral part of the care team.

Salem Hospital has made services available for colleagues who require support in dealing with this loss.

We express our deepest sympathies to Emira’s husband, family, and friends, and all those who loved her.
