Abrazo West Campus holds 5th annual Rescue RoundupFeb 26, 2019
Hundreds of local families attended the 5th annual Rescue Roundup at Abrazo West Campus, learning about health and safety and how the hospital works with area first responders.
The popular event included rescue demonstrations, car seat safety checks, health information and up-close views of helicopters, ambulances and fire trucks. There were also bicycle giveaways, and Scouts attending the Abrazo Rescue Roundup earned merit badges.
“Rescue Roundup is one of the hospital’s signature events to showcase how our Level I Trauma Center and hospital works hand in hand with first responders to keep our community safe and healthy,” said Abrazo West Campus CEO Christina Oh. “It's a great way to show the community that sometimes health starts with prevention, so we also have a lot of health education at the event."
“As we continue to grow and serve our West Valley communities, Rescue Roundup is a fun way to provide health and safety education to visitors of all ages,’’ said Oh.
Abrazo West Campus will become a teaching hospital for physicians in the new graduate medical education programs Abrazo is launching this summer. Emergency and trauma medicine rotations for General Surgery and Internal Medicine residents will be held at Abrazo West, adding to the hospital’s ability to attract and retain future physicians.
