Under the leadership of the Medical Director Sheila Southerland and ER Nursing Director Melinda Adkins, Crisp Regional Hospital is proud to announce that the 2015-2016 STEMI Care of Excellence Award has been given to Crisp Regional Hospital’s Emergency Department and to Crisp County EMS. The State Office of Rural Health, together with the Georgia Hospital Association Research and Education Foundation, chose these two recipients based on their outstanding performance in the provision of STEMI Care, thereby creating a culture of safety within this community. With the award, the ED received $5000.00 and EMS received $2500.00 to use towards treating STEMI patients. This is a huge display of team work and doing what’s right for the patient in an efficient and effective manner. WAY TO GO ED AND EMS!!!!
