For the Emergency Department
These kids look like nothing could touch them, but childhood friends, Gene and Cole, faced an emergency situation when their dirt bikes collided. Severely injured, they needed help right away. They were immediately rushed to Granville Medical Center.
Edward Bartels, director of emergency services, and his team of physicians and nurses were ready to help. The injuries were serious, but with the help of GHS Emergency Services, both boys have fully recovered. Now they’re back doing what they enjoy, racing dirt bikes.
