LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center marked a major milestone for their patients, healthcare heroes, and the Las Vegas community.

More than 100 COVID-19 patients have been discharged to date – the milestone was marked by the discharge of patient Etta Williams, 71, of Las Vegas.


Mrs. Williams arrived at Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center’s ER along with her husband, Mr. Michael Williams, and was admitted on May 4.

After the difficult and heartbreaking loss of her husband to COVID-19, Mrs. Williams was a strong fighter and beat the virus.

Mrs. Williams, a bright light full of energy, has now tested COVID-19 negative/free of the virus, and left the hospital yesterday ready to celebrate with her family. Originally from Mississippi, Williams has lived in Las Vegas for the past 41 years.
