Sixteen students who were headed to a soccer game yesterday afternoon were treated and released from Fairview Park Hospital after their bus flipped over off Buckeye Road. The students were brought to Fairview Park Hospital's ER for medical evaluation and to reunite with their families. All students were in stable condition upon arrival and were able to be discharged by Friday morning.
"It is our privilege to care for our community," said Chief Medical Officer, Dr. George Harrison. "Our hospital is made up of neighbors caring for neighbors, and last night we were honored to be there when these students needed us."
Fairview Park Hospital holds regular drills and exercises to train for incidents such as this. These drills prepare hospital personnel to efficiently care for an influx of patients.
