Princeton Baptist Medical Center Honors First Responders During National EMS Week

May 21, 2021

Week highlights life-saving community partnerships, in particular over the past year

BIRMINGHAM, ALA. – As we celebrate National Emergency Medical Services Week (May 16-22), we would like to recognize the men and women who commit their lives to providing critical, life-saving services and compassionate care to our patients and our community, in particular the sacrifices and selfless service demonstrated throughout the past year.

Through this year’s theme, “This is EMS: Caring for Our Communities,” we seek to join, inspire and celebrate first responders for all they do. We are privileged to work side by side with these heroes every day.

Since 1974, hospitals across the country have celebrated National Emergency Medical Services Week and invited their communities to recognize and thank the dedicated first responders who provide quality care throughout the year.

“We want to make sure that the emergency medical services partners who work with our Princeton Baptist team and jointly help our patients in their time of need know we deeply appreciate their service and skill,” stated Princeton Baptist Medical Center CEO, Mike Neuendorf. “While we officially celebrate our EMS partners one week a year, we are thankful every day for their dedication and selfless service. Today’s appreciation lunch is just a small way we can show that we care about them.”

We encourage everyone to dial 9-1-1 in an emergency so that EMS can provide immediate care and transport you safely and quickly to the hospital.
