Nexsen Pruet & Rio Grande Feed Cone Health Medical Professionals


Greensboro, NC (May 14, 2020) – The Nexsen Pruet law firm and Rio Grande Mexican Kitchen partnered to support medical professionals on the front lines fighting the COVID-19 crisis by delivering 160 meals to Cone Health’s Green Valley Campus in Greensboro, North Carolina. The Cone Health campus is located across the street from Nexsen Pruet.

“The COVID-19 crisis has taken a physical and mental toll on health care workers around the world, including right here in Greensboro,” said Christy Myatt, a member of the Bankruptcy/ Finance practice group at Nexsen Pruet. “We are grateful for their personal sacrifice to serve others while potentially putting their own lives at risk.”

In April, the former Cone Health Women’s Hospital in Greensboro, now known as the Green Valley Campus, was converted to care for severely ill COVID-19 patients. These actions have helped meet the anticipated increase in the volume of infected patients. This site cares for patients who are transferred from other sites or admitted directly by their physician.

“Our local Doctors and nurses are working so diligently to keep everyone healthy and safe! We feel honored and humbled to be able to provide them with a hot meal as a way to say thank you for all you do for our community,” said Joe Mandeville a member of Rio Grande’s ownership team.

To thank those who are working diligently to combat COVID-19, Rio Grande Mexican Kitchen used quality ingredients to create both lunch and dinner boxes to serve to the healthcare workers.

“Rio Grande has been a long-term client and business partner of Nexsen Pruet making this partnership to thank healthcare workers even better,” said Brian Pearce, the Greensboro office managing partner at Nexsen Pruet. “Over the last several months, both the restaurant and health care industries been significantly impacted by COVID-19. To be able to give back to both, to Rio Grande through business and the Green Valley Campus through meals, is exceptionally meaningful.”

As one of the leading law firms in the Southeast, Nexsen Pruet provides a broad range of legal services to the business community and has offices in both North and South Carolina. The law firm is deploying meals of gratitude in other cities as well.
