Spencer Hospital’s Clinical Instructor, Jeff Messerole, was a recipient of the Experienced Provider award presented by Wings Air Rescue – a private air medical helicopter service operating out of Sioux City, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia. Wings Air Rescue provides air medical transport for critically ill and injured patients from referring hospitals and accident scenes to tertiary care facilities.
The Experienced Provider award is presented each quarter by the company to an experienced provider in their respective services areas and acknowledges their contribution in advancing the education of EMS providers by sharing their experiences. Messerole was chosen in March, but due to COVID concerns, Wings Air Rescue was unable to present the award until now.
“To me, it is an honor when recognized by my peers, as there are so many educators out there doing great work,” said Messerole. “It says a lot when recognized by an organization of critical care providers and I am humbled that they thought of me when giving out this award.”
Messerole has participated in emergency medical services for 38 years and has been a full-time instructor at Spencer Hospital since 2007.
“I couldn’t do what I do without the tremendous support I have gotten from Spencer Hospital leadership in allowing me to grow as an educator and share my experiences with hospital staff and EMS providers locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.”
