During National EMS Week, May 21 - 27, we would like to take a moment to say “thank you” to our Emergency Medical Services partners – the EMTs, firefighters, paramedics and registered nurses who provide emergency care outside the hospital environment. This year’s theme is EMS Strong: Always In Service, which reflects the long hours our EMS partners endure to take care of the needs of our community and help us meet our mission to provide exceptional care, without exception, every patient, every time.
We’ll be showing our appreciation to our EMS partners throughout the week in various ways to thank those who are "Always in Service" in a career that demands passion, purpose and heart. We are thankful for their life-saving efforts, not just this week, but every day!
