Snapshot: National Guard, Ascension St. Vincent conduct training


Indiana National Guard soldiers and Ascension St. Vincent medical professionals conducted training rehearsals at the Ascension St. Vincent Hospital April 9 to develop interagency pandemic responses. Because of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Ascension St. Vincent and the Indiana National Guard worked together to create standard operating procedures using military resources for transporting stable patients requiring minimal care to nearby medical facilities. This training helped create a plan to prevent exhaustion of a hospital’s resources in the event of a patient surge and will become a model for similar trainings across the state. (Submitted photo)
