May 17-23 is National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week. On behalf of the team members of South Peninsula Hospital, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our EMS crew members for their tireless work and their families for supporting and sharing these outstanding professionals.

When an emergency call goes out, EMS responds regardless of time of day, weather, road conditions, or dangers they may face getting to a person in need of help.

Most of our EMS members are volunteers with their departments, giving a great deal of their time to their community when it’s needed most, taking time from their jobs and families to answer emergency calls. As well, they spend countless hours, staying current in changing EMS trends, certifications, training and participating in drills.

These men and woman are skilled, courteous professional members of our community, and we appreciate the care and compassion given to patients and families prior to their arrival to South Peninsula Hospital.

Thank you, Anchor Point Fire and Emergency Services, Kachemack Emergency Services, Ninilchik Emergency Services and Homer Volunteer Fire Department.

 From all of the team members at South Peninsula Hospital, we applaud you and your service to our community.

Kenneth Rogers

Emergency Department Manager

South Peninsula Hospital
