Steward Health Care is now accepting nominations for exceptional emergency medical service providers to receive recognition at a celebration of the National Emergency Medical Service (EMS) week in May.

The “EMS Stewards of the Community” awards show appreciation for emergency medical responders and dispatchers, emergency medical technicians and paramedics who care for others with a high degree of expertise, professionalism, and compassion.

Steward operates ten hospitals across Mass., including Holy Family Hospital in Haverhill and Methuen.

“EMS providers are on the front lines of health care delivery, often helping patients when every second counts,” said Brenden Hayden, Director of EMS at Steward Health Care. “We encourage all members of the Steward family to nominate outstanding EMS providers in their community to thank them for their lifesaving work.”

An internal committee of physicians, nurses and EMS Managers will review nominations and select recipients for each of the Steward hospitals.

To nominate an EMS provider in your community for an “EMS Stewards of the Community” award, go to info.steward.org/emsaward2018.html.

Nominations must be received by Friday, April 27, 2018.
