Floyd Medical Center's Emergency Medical Services was named Region 1 Service of the Year by Northwest Georgia Emergency Medical Services. The award was presented at the organization's annual awards banquet.
"Our team of EMS professionals serve and care for others in such extraordinary ways," said Bud Owens, Executive Director of Floyd Emergency Medical Services. "I see them impacting our patients in such a positive manner, as they continually go above and beyond to serve others."
Along with being named Service of the Year, two Floyd EMS professionals received individual awards. Paramedic Tony Cooper received the Dr. James Creel, Jr. Pioneer of the Year Award, while Paramedic Don Taylor was honored with the Dr. Paul Nassour Lifetime Achievement Award.
"These awards are proof positive that Tony and Don have earned the respect of their peers through excellent service and dedication to their patients, to their co-workers and to Floyd," Owens said. "I can't think of two more deserving individuals."
