Red Cross expresses appreciation for Baptist’s help with bus crash victims

The Red Cross’ Tennessee Region sent the following letter thanking Baptist DeSoto and Baptist Collierville team members for taking care of the survivors of a fatal DeSoto County bus crash in November.

What a privilege it was to work with the capable teams at Baptist DeSoto and Baptist Collierville following the fatal bus crash in DeSoto County. The Red Cross was able to help connect family members that had been scattered between multiple hospitals and to reach out to those that were on the bus to offer service and support. We continue to work with several that remain hospitalized in our community. We could not have met the needs of these clients without the cooperation of the Baptist team. Not only did your team provide for the physical health needs but compassionately went beyond to care for each person. Even as far as allowing clients to stay in empty rooms knowing they had nowhere to go that night. This was a tragic and traumatic event, but the kindness extended that night can only help as they begin to heal.
