TriHealth Bridge

10 February, 2020

We are thrilled to welcome our first Operation SMART (Strategic Medical Asset Readiness Training) participants for 2020. The SMART group consists of Medical Military Personnel who will train alongside their civilian counterparts at TriHealth for two weeks.

We are excited for the opportunity to SERVE our Military through this continued partnership with the military, The Health Collaborative and other area Health Organizations. 


Operation Cincinnati SMART is the innovative, first-of-its-kind partnership which focuses on high-quality, individualized specialty medical training for service members to improve their knowledge, skill sets and increase individual readiness.  

This program pairs service members with highly specialized medical skills from all branches and components of the Department of Defense, to leverage and utilize local civilian hospital resources across the country to prevent skill atrophy and broaden their knowledge to enhance their readiness in support of the National Security Strategy of the United States.   

Training includes accompanying paramedics on ambulance calls, coordinating care in the Organization with Leadership, working alongside emergency room personnel and training in the ICU and OR.

I met one of these young men in our GSH ED and ask him if he was one of the SMART ones. He said; "Why yes ma'am, I am" with a big smile on his face. This is such a great program.
