NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital hosted its eighth annual First Responders’ Appreciation Breakfast on Monday, Sept. 11. The hospital invited all first responders in the region for a complimentary breakfast, served by Baptist team members at the NEA Baptist Conference Center.

First responders who couldn’t sit down for breakfast participated with to-go orders and grab-and-go items.

“First responders work hand-in-hand with our Emergency Department. These brave men and women risk their lives to protect ours,” said Ty Jones, director of marketing for NEA Baptist. “Whether it’s by creating a safer community or rushing in to provide aid after a disaster, we owe a debt to all first responders. This breakfast is a way that we as a health system can say ‘Thank you.’”
