WASHINGTON HEALTH SYSTEM GREENE MAY BE A SMALL COMMUNITY FACILITY, BUT IT’S PERFORMING WELL ABOVE ITS WEIGHT CLASS—JUST ASK JEREMY KERN.
Jeremy is no stranger to emergency departments (EDs). Having worked in emergency medical services for about 25 years and as a flight nurse for 17, there are few people who know the ins and outs of an ED quite like Jeremy.
So, when he suffered a severe ankle sprain, he wasn’t excited about the idea of visiting one.
“My wife and I are both nurses, so we’re big believers in only using the ED when it’s absolutely necessary,” Jeremy says. “However, my sprain caused such excruciating pain that I felt it was inevitable.”
Jeremy was taken to the ED at WHS Greene where, to his surprise, he was in and out in just 45 minutes.
“I was thoroughly impressed by the staff who helped me,” Jeremy says. “They were efficient, helpful and had me on my way in no time. It’s good to see a local hospital operate at such a high level.”
“I was born and raised in this area, so it’s great to see a local hospital like WHS provide such excellent care,” Jeremy says. “If another emergency arises, I’d surely go back.”
