TriHealth Bridge

09 August, 2019

 “We appreciate everyone at TriHealth.  I pray we never have to use our skills, but when that day comes, I know we’ll be ready. This particular medic’s civilian job is at Home Depot and as he is in the National Guard as a medic, he doesn’t get a lot of hands on training because his civilian role is completely different than his military role,” commented one of the Combat Medic Specialists in the TriHealth May group. His unit is set to deploy in the fall.

We're celebrating our continued innovative partnership between four Cincinnati health systems through the Health Collaborative and the U.S. Military to provide high-quality, individualized, specialty medical training to military medical personnel by welcoming our fourth group of Soldiers during the month of August. Soldiers will be at TriHealth August 5-15, with graduation on August 16.

Our partnership with Cincinnati SMART 2.0 -(Strategic Medical Asset Readiness Training) began in Cincinnati on August 5. 

There are approximately 31 soldiers participating in Cincinnati in the third Quarter 2019, with seven soldiers training at TriHealth. Roles include Combat Medics, Nursing specialist, Radiology technician, Behavioral Health specialist and Health Services Administration.

They will be training in various areas at Bethesda North Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital, concluding with a simulation day through the TriHealth Education and Simulation Center on August 15.

We welcome the opportunity to continue to support the U.S. Military through this important initiative.

What a wonderfully innovative way to support our military. I share the hope that these emergency skills will never be needed, but it is great that TriHealth can help these individuals be ready to serve.
