The EmStar Emergency Department of Mount St. Mary’s Hospital will recognize local Emergency Medical Service (EMS) professionals at an awards dinner on Wednesday, May 20 at the Niagara Falls Country Club. The dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m.
Sponsored by Mount St. Mary's Hospital and Exigence/TeamHealth, the group of physicians that staff the hospital’s EmStar Emergency Department, the dinner is being held in conjunction with the hospital’s recognition of national EMS Week. Dr. Lloyd Brown, chief of the Department of Emergency Medicine/EmStar, is the organizer of the event to salute EMS excellence.
“As EMS professionals are the first responders on the scene, the initial treatment and care assessment they provide to patients is extremely important and often life-saving,” said Dr. Brown.
