Indiana Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Bestows Honors to Local Health Care Heroes

INDIANAPOLIS – The work of health care providers, public safety workers and community leaders who have given above and beyond care to Hoosier children was celebrated at the 2nd Annual Health Care Heroes Breakfast May 22 at Ruth Lilly Education Center.

Elizabeth Weinstein, program director for Indiana Emergency Medical Services (EMSC), said, "Hoosiers may not always realize the extraordinary things that their neighbors are doing every day to keep the children of Indiana safe and healthy. We are honored to have the opportunity to thank them and celebrate their successes in a public way."

The 2013 Health Care Hero Award winners are:

  • Deborah Baize, St. Mary’s Medical Center & Safe Kids Vanderburgh/Warrick counties, was presented with the award in Public Safety for all her efforts and training on car seat and helmet safety for kids. Baize’s responsibility also covers scheduling car seat clinics in the community.
  • Kenneth Musall, South Vermillion High School, was presented an award for Community Leadership and Advocacy for his years of educating children in swimming training. Musall has selflessly devoted himself to teaching others how to save drowning victims.
  • Pamela Moore-Stigall, Ivy Tech College in Indianapolis, was presented with the Pre-hospital Care award for her advocacy in pediatric training. In the last year she has instructed more than 1,200 students and conducted more than 100 simulations. Stigall is dedicated to emergency medical response.
  • Gary Kleeman, Harrison County Hospital EMS, was presented with the Pre-hospital Care and Community Advocacy award for his hard work in support of EMS. Kleeman is relentless in finding funding for Child Protective Seats fitting stations, activities that the EMS service sponsors such as, Car Seat Clinics, Farm safety, EMS Awareness, Halloween Safety and Seat Belt safety.
  • Cindy Allison, People’s Burn Foundation, Indianapolis, was presented a Community Advocacy award for her dedication in her field. Allison coordinates applications for burn survivors and is a counselor for Brave Hearts Camp for burn victims. 
  • Lora Hayes, People’s Burn Foundation, Indianapolis, was presented with an award in Community Advocacy for her work in adult, child and family counseling. Hayes provides counseling and volunteers her time to children with burns. She also helps run the annual burn camp and contributes counseling services to those children.
  • Bobby Courtney, MESH, a healthcare coalition that works on disaster preparedness, Indianapolis, was given the Community Leadership and Preparedness award for his efforts in community-based planning for programs and working groups. Courtney has helped the Maternal and Child Health Working Group (MCHWG), by ensuring that the needs of children and expectant mothers are appropriately considered in the disaster planning process.
These recipients along with all health care providers, public safety workers and community leaders work closely with EMSC to achieve their goals in reducing pediatric morbidity and mortality, providing support and educational opportunities for pre-hospital and health care providers, and to represent the unique needs of children within the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) community throughout Indiana.
