ECHN Recognizes First Responders Day


ECHN relies on our local fire, police and emergency medical services professionals throughout the year. Our relationship with these organizations helps to serve our community and keep them safe, healthy and protected in times of need. This Wednesday, for lunch from (11:30 am – 1:30 pm) and dinner (from 4 – 6 pm), ECHN will be hosting outdoor events at both Manchester Memorial and Rockville General Hospitals in recognition of our community partners who serve as First Responders. We will be thanking First Responders by providing a meal, giveaways and messages of thanks for our special guests from nearby towns and we have created a video to share with First Responders to show our appreciation for their partnership all year long.

“We are proud to serve our eastern Connecticut communities in collaboration with the First Responders in the state. We honor their good work and look forward to letting them know of our sentiments during our events this Wednesday,” said Michael Collins, CEO, Eastern Connecticut Health Network.
