As we celebrate National Emergency Medical Services Week (May 18-24), Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital would like to recognize the men and women who commit their lives to providing critical, lifesaving services and compassionate care to our patients and their families.

“The emergency department is the backbone of our hospital and an essential part of our community,” said Terry Wheeler, chief executive officer of Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital.  “Residents rely on the EMS system and its trained professionals, who have incredible compassion and devotion to their jobs and communities.  We’re proud to take this opportunity to show them how much we appreciate their dedication.”

For 35 years, hospitals across the country have been celebrating National EMS Week and bringing together local communities, medical personnel and hospitals to not only encourage safety, but also to honor the dedication of thousands of people who, as first responders to medical emergencies, dedicate their lives to providing critical, lifesaving services in their communities. 

“Our emergency medical personnel play an incredibly important role at our hospital,” said Michelle Pate, Emergency Department Nurse Manager.  “The round-the-clock dedication and individual compassion they show to our patients makes me proud to be a part of the Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital team.  National Emergency Medical Services Week allows each of us the chance to say thank you to these extraordinary individuals who care for our family and friends and provide a valuable resource to our community.”

Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital, with the help of the service and responsiveness of local Emergency Medical Services teams, continues to improve the standard of care for patients in an emergency setting.
