May 19-25 is National Emergency Services Week. This week provides a wonderful opportunity for Hilton Head Hospital and Coastal Carolina Hospital to recognize the extraordinary men and women who serve our community as first responders. These individuals dedicate their lives to providing compassionate, life-saving services -- and for that we are grateful.
Every day, these brave emergency medical responders provide reliable medical attention during the most crucial times. Their rapid response to our patients and their families is an integral part of the care that we are proud to provide at our two hospitals.
Please join me in thanking these individuals for their heroic services to our friends, family and neighbors. It is dedicated people like this that make me proud to be a member of this wonderful health care community.
