Without a doubt, every day is a good day to recognize and celebrate our veterans, as well as those who serve or are about to serve in our armed forces. A unique program-- "Operation Send A Vet," put together by the Lehigh Valley IronPigs ball club-- brought more than 2,000 veterans and their families together for the Pigs' home opener on April 4th. Patient First stepped up to the plate to participate in this unique celebration of our military for a second consecutive year, and we were so delighted to be part of the fun! We were present on-site with an information table, giving away items on the ballpark's concourse. In addition, our financial contribution enabled 100 veterans and their families to come out and enjoy the day, capped off by an IronPigs win!

We enjoyed so many conversations with both "old-timer" vets and new enlistees, while providing free blood pressure checks on-site, and distributing a variety of our give-away items. We even scored an opportunity for a ceremonial First Pitch, which was so much fun!

It is always nice to hear positive feedback from folks who have visited Patient First. People continue to be so happy to be able to walk into any of our centers without an appointment when they have an injury, or are feeling under the weather and need non-emergency medical attention.

This event was designed to thank our service men and women of all branches and status, by giving them an opportunity to experience the fun and excitement of a game at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, PA. This year's event was a home run, and Mother Nature brought us warm and sunny weather, making our experience all the more enjoyable!
