Three grateful families were introduced to their rescuers at a special event at MedStar the morning of July 6th, 2016.
Allison Marquardt was alone at home the morning of May 13th when she went into labor. With the assistance of MedStar 911 dispatcher Kate Gillinger, Allison delivered her little boy, Augustine, all by herself while EMS units were responding. Allison and her family met Kate for the 1st time this morning!
Ashlie Williams was at home with her mom, Debbie the morning of May 17th when Ashlie went into labor. With the assistance of MedStar 911 dispatcher Jamey Clark, Debbie delivered her little daughter, Carter. Ashlie and Debbie met Jamey face to face for the 1st time at the meeting.
On April 3, 2014, Zach Malwitz suffered an out of hospital cardiac arrest. Thanks to the efforts of MedStar personnel Eddie Fuller and Tim Statum, and despite his heart stopping three times during the treatment, Zach was successfully resuscitated and has made a full recovery. Zach and his mom, Amy, Dad Doug, and Step Mom Julie met Eddie and Tim face to face for the first time at the meeting.
We were very honored to not only have all the families meet their MedStar rescuers, but also have every major media outlet on hand to memorialize the event!
