Saying ‘thank you’ to EMS professionals for a job well done
The work done by area emergency medical service (EMS) professionals is critical in saving lives and improving outcomes. So Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Washington University EMS and St. Louis Children’s Hospital teamed up once again to say thank you to area first responders for their service to the community.
On Thursday, May 23, this year’s annual thank you event helped celebrate Trauma Awareness Month and the 40th anniversary of National EMS Week. Crews from all shifts gathered in the Barnes-Jewish emergency department’s ambulance bay to enjoy a complimentary breakfast, lunch, or evening nacho bar.
“It’s just a small way we say thank you for the big role they help play in our ability to provide the best patient care possible year-round,” says Julie Nash, manager of trauma services at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
