FineAwards.com, a custom award retailer from Davie, Fl, will present recognition EMT awards to COVID units and Emergency Medical Technicians, or EMTs, of South Florida at Coral Gables Hospital on Apr. 22.
This upcoming award ceremony is part of FineAward.com’s recognition program called Heroes of COVID-19. This program recognizes the efforts of South Florida’s service members who have nursed the sick and saved lives during the COVID-19 pandemic in South Florida.
This award ceremony is one of many that FineAwards.com has held for the hospitals and EMTs of Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade Counties.
The Heroes of COVID-19 program was started by FineAwards.com to reward the hospitals under Tenet Healthcare, a healthcare company based out of Dallas, TX. Tenet manages five hospitals in South Florida and each one has been recognized for its duty.
In the early summer months of 2020, Florida was impacted with high volumes of new infections, marking Florida as an epicenter for the virus. The situation in Florida became so critical that Gov. Ron DeSantis hired more than 2,000 out-of-state nurses to assist exhausted hospital units.
But this pandemic hasn’t detered the service members from their duty. EMTs respond to local emergencies while COVID units in hospitals help sick patients.
With this combined effort, the number of infected cases dropped significantly in the late summer and early autumn months of 2020. Even now, with a vaccine, South Florida’s COVID units and EMTs haven’t stopped their duty. Due to this, the number of new infections has dropped in early 2021.
Coral Gables Hospital’s staff will be rewarded with personalized crystal awards that FineAwards.com specializes in doing. For over 20 years, this company has dedicated itself to recognition and appreciation for the hard work employees put into their jobs.
Although the current situation isn’t ideal, we’re seeing a return to normalcy. FineAwards.com saw an opportunity to raise the morale of service and EMT members who are on the frontlines daily and are making a difference in the fight against COVID-19.
Now, more than ever, the communities of South Florida need the help and resilience of our service members facing this pandemic head-on, and we thank them for their effort.
