Service Hero Story: Surgeons Take Action

President Tony Houston, Drs. Larrimer and Webb, and Vice President Dr. Doug Ross.

Congratulations to our trauma surgical team in Hot Springs for being recognized as a service heroes for September.

The story from Phillip Nahas, RN, Trauma Coordinator:

As part of our mission to care for the community whatever time of day or night, our ER and surgical teams have to take action when severe trauma incidents happen.

When multiple gunshot wound victims all showed up in the ER, Dr. Zac Larrimer responded and accessed them. Emergency surgeries were in order, and the entire surgical team, including Drs. Ron Kaler, Steven Halter and John Webb quickly arrived from a social engagement (this happened on a weekend night) and took action. One of the gunshot wounds required significant surgical intervention.

Our community is so blessed to have such strong surgical care, phenomenal teamwork and quick response.

We give praise and celebration to all the people involved in helping save these lives.
