Southern Regional Celebrates EMS Week


Throughout the week of May 22, Southern Regional Medical Center took time to honor and thank all regional EMS staff for their dedication to the communities they serve. As part of National EMS Week, the hospital sponsored “grab-and-go” lunches on Monday and Friday for EMS staff, and raffled off a Porsche print from the Porsche Center, Atlanta.

National EMS Week is designated to bring together local EMS practitioners and their communities. This year marks the 43rd celebration of the week that was established by President Gerald Ford. Back then, EMS was a new profession, and EMS practitioners were just starting to be recognized as a critical component of emergency medicine.

At Southern Regional, we are grateful every day to our EMS practitioners for all they do. To them we extend a heartfelt “Thank You.”
