Lifesaving addition aids young athletes

In addition to providing urgent and primary care services to the Chattanooga community, Doctors Express also recently provided an automated external defibrillator (AED) to Rivermont Park, home to the Rivermont Youth Athletic Association, a nonprofit community service organization responsible for directing youth athletic programs that provide wholesome recreation to hundreds of boys and girls in the local area.

The AED donated by Doctors Express can be used by a layman in the case of uneven heart rhythms that can lead to heart attacks.

Doctors Express shares in the commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles in our community, and the AED will be a potentially lifesaving addition to Rivermont Park.
