Barnes-Jewish To Host Annual BBQ For EMS
The services our community fire personnel, paramedics, EMTs, police officers and other emergency medical service (EMS) professionals provide are invaluable. That’s why Washington University EMS, Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital are inviting these important people to a BBQ lunch this Thursday, May 24th.
“We look forward to this celebration every year,” says Julie Nash, manager of trauma services. “We all depend on the expertise of these professionals, and it’s great to be able to say ‘thank you!’”
Stacey Woods, RN, nurse coordinator for Acute Care Surgery and Trauma Services and coordinator of the EMS Celebration BBQ, notes, “Prior to becoming a nurse at Barnes-Jewish, I worked for a rural EMS agency as a paramedic. I know firsthand how many sleepless nights, empty stomachs and endless shifts are in a year’s work. Thank you, EMS, for all you do!”
Learn more about our trauma program, which has earned the distinction of Level I verification from the American College of Surgeons, the highest national recognition possible.
