Steward Health Care to host first national "EMS Stewards of the Community" awards
Steward Now Accepting Nominations for Exceptional EMS Providers along the Space Coast including Brevard and Indian River Counties
In celebration of National Emergency Medical Service (EMS) week, Steward Health Care System will host its First National “EMS Stewards of the Community” Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, May 23 at the Melbourne Hilton Rialto.
Steward, which operates three local hospitals, including Melbourne Regional Medical Center, Rockledge Regional Medical Center and Sebastian River Medical Center, will recognize several Emergency Medical Services providers for going “above and beyond” in their interactions with patients at each of Steward’s community hospitals. To nominate an EMS provider in your community for an “EMS Stewards of the Community” award, go to info.steward.org/emsaward2018-FL.html. Nominations must be received by Friday, April 27.
“EMS providers are on the front lines of health care delivery, often helping patients when every second counts,” said Brenden Hayden, Director of EMS at Steward Health Care. “We encourage all members of the Steward family to nominate outstanding EMS providers in their community to thank them for their lifesaving work.”
The “EMS Stewards of the Community” awards show appreciation for emergency medical responders and dispatchers, emergency medical technicians, advanced emergency medical technicians and paramedics who not only carry out the noble work of caring for others but do so with a high degree of expertise, professionalism and compassion. An internal committee of physicians, nurses and EMS Managers will review nominations and select recipients for each of the Steward hospitals.
