Orange Park Medical Center on Location with “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition"
January 20, 2011
Staff volunteers will provide on-site medical care when the show comes to Clay County
Orange Park, FL – Staff volunteers from Orange Park Medical Center will be providing first responder medical services for ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” when the popular TV show comes to Clay County. Nearly 50 nurses, technicians, paramedics and other clinicians will be on location 24/7 during the week-long project to build a home for one deserving Clay County family.
The name of the family and the location of the home site will not be released until later this month, but the project will start January 26 and finish February 3.
“Orange Park Medical Center staff is so excited to work together with other members of our community on this project,” says Kathy Hester, RN, BSN, JD, Chief Nursing Officer for Orange Park Medical Center. “We are proud to do our part by providing onsite medical care on a 24 hour basis for the duration of the project to assure the safety of all volunteers. Our staff watches and loves Extreme Home Makeover Home Edition and can’t wait to be a part of the activities.”
While it’s hoped their services won’t be necessary, the Orange Park Medical Center staff volunteers will be prepared to treat minor illnesses and injuries, should any occur on location during the week.
