Ascension Genesys Recognizes Prehospital Providers During EMS Week v2.0

Ascension Genesys recognized the hard work of First Responders (August 23 - 29, 2020) during a rescheduled EMS Week appreciation.

“This year was a challenge,” said Jason West, Director of Emergency, Training, and Trauma Services. “We had to cancel EMS Week in May due to Covid19. I'm pleased we had the opportunity to show EMS how much we appreciate what they do for our community."

"Social distancing and safety was our top priority," commented Alan Janssen D.O., Director of US Acute Care Solutions.

Education took place in small groups and meals were “grab and go,” said Janssen. Lunch and learn education was provided by departments of: Neuroscience, Cardiology, Trauma, and Emergency Services along with US Acute Care Solutions.
