Week highlights life-saving first responder partnerships, especially during pandemic


BIRMINGHAM, ALA. – As we celebrate National Emergency Medical Services Week (May 16-22), we would like to recognize the men and women who commit their lives to providing critical, life-saving services and compassionate care to our patients and our community, in particular the sacrifices and selfless service demonstrated throughout the past year.

Through this year’s theme, “This is EMS: Caring for Our Communities,” we seek to join, inspire and celebrate first responders for all they do. We are privileged to work side by side with these heroes every day.

Since 1974, hospitals across the country have celebrated National Emergency Medical Services Week and invited their communities to recognize and thank the dedicated first responders who provide quality care throughout the year.

“From all of us at Brookwood Baptist Medical Center, thank you for your courage and dedication. Now more than ever, you are appreciated for your selfless calling that puts you on the front lines and at the core of compassionate care,” stated Brookwood Baptist Medical Center CEO, Tim Puthoff.

We encourage everyone to dial 9-1-1 in an emergency so that EMS can provide immediate care and transport you safely and quickly to the hospital.
