As we celebrate National Emergency Medical Services Week, Doctors Medical Center would like to recognize our EMS partners and all first responders who commit their lives to providing critical, life-saving services and compassionate care to our patients and the community. The around-the-clock dedication and extraordinary care you provide to our patients is an incredibly vital role at Doctors Medical Center. We recognize the important contributions of all first responders to our friends, loved ones, neighbors and to our hospital colleagues who work with you side by side to provide lifesaving care every day.

When an emergency or crisis occurs in our homes, in our businesses or in our communities, our EMS professionals are first to answer the call for help.
