SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Memorial Health University Medical Center welcomed eight medically trained Georgia National Guard members Tuesday.
The group was deployed as part of Gov. Brian Kemp’s recent order to send 105 National Guard personnel to 20 hospitals across the state to help them deal with the state’s latest surge of COVID-19 cases.
In a social media post, Memorial Health officials said they were excited to have the group and appreciate their support.
“When we came in, they were like, ‘Oh, we’re so glad to have you. If you can help out wherever you can, it’s fine,'” said Lt. Col. Faney Hilliard. “And we’re the group of people who will ask you where can we help out.”
Hilliard says the group will be at Memorial until December.
