Warmer weather, fresh flowers, the smell of rain and the sound of bats cracking. It’s safe to say Spring is finally here and so is baseball season! With baseball season and other spring sports, injuries and sometimes emergency situations come hand in hand. This year, Pomerene Hospital and Pomerene Family Care in Loudonville happily donated an AED machine and case to the Loudonville Youth League and President Eric Stitzlein.
An AED, or Automated External Defibrillator, is an easy-to-use medical device to help those experiencing sudden
cardiac arrest. It analyzes the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, delivers an electrical shock (defibrillation) to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm.
“Pomerene is honored to present Loudonville Youth League with an AED to provide the accessibility for potentially lifesaving measures if an emergency arises” Rachel Kandel, Pomerene Medical Group Administrator.
Deb Lewis, Nurse Practitioner for Pomerene Family Care in Loudonville, shared her excitement for being able to give back to the Loudonville community. “I played ball on these fields and coached my children on these fields. It only feels right to be able to give back to the league that provides so much for the kids in this community.”
Pomerene Family Care is dedicated to providing a full spectrum, family care practice to meet the personalized healthcare needs of you and your loved ones of all ages. From diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses, disease prevention, well visits and immunizations, our team is right next door!
