Who Will Answer Their Call?
This summer, I was interviewed about Rural EMS by Emily Hazen, an intern with the New York State Association for Rural Health. The Upstate Institute Policy Paper details the need to preserve and increase EMS access in rural communities. Her paper concludes the need for action and proposes several ideas to help support the rural EMS system. I was happy to be asked my input on EMS and am glad to see the paper that Emily completed.
Patient Safety Priority for OGH
Earlier this week, interim president and CEO of Upper Allegany Health System, Mary LaRowe, had a guest comment article in the Olean Times Herald. The article focuses on the dedicated and compassionate healthcare providers serving our community. I can see from this article that Mary is dedicated to ensuring patient safety, and this article was a great reminder to all that read it about the hard work that healthcare workers put in every day.
I hope everyone has a Happy Labor Day weekend! In observance of the date, the STHCS office will be closed on Monday.
