Bates County Memorial Hospital’s new Unit 1 ambulance was dedicated to the memory of Kelly Phillips, paramedic, who served as the Director of Ambulance, Emergency Services and Outpatient Clinics at BCMH. His career with the hospital spanned 38 years. He also served as a Lieutenant with the Bates County Sheriff Department, and as an entry team commander and tactical medic.
