Nick Sellers, vice president for the Mobile Division of Alabama Power Company, and his wife Julie are the chairs for this year’s USA Health Night Honoring Heroes.
“Julie and I are honored that USA Health has asked us to be part of this event that highlights the work of the people dedicated to saving people’s lives,” Nick Sellers said. “When we see the horrible car crash while we are driving, most of us don’t think about all the professionals who spring into action to save a person’s life. From the dispatcher who takes the initial frantic phone call and directs the first responders including police, fire and EMS, and the trauma surgeons who perform delicate operations in life-saving time to the nurses who regularly monitor the patients and get to know them to the environmental service workers to help ensure patients are comfortable and in the cleanest environment possible. The number of people involved in helping that person leave through the front door of University Hospital is extraordinary.”
“All of us at USA Health are excited to have Julie and Nick involved in this year’s Night Honoring Heroes,” said John Marymont, M.D., M.B.A., vice president for medical affairs and dean of the College of Medicine. “The symbiotic relationship between the community and USA Health is extremely tight. The involvement of the Sellers, in addition to our presenting sponsors The Mapp Family Foundation, illustrates this fact very well.”
A Night Honoring Heroes honors first responders, physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals who provide lifesaving healthcare to patients throughout the Gulf Coast.
USA Health University Hospital holds a unique role as the region’s only adult Level I Trauma Center, the epicenter of the highest level of care when the unexpected happens. University Hospital is the only area hospital that has an in-house, around the clock trauma team that includes specialized surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, respiratory therapists and others.
“I couldn’t be more excited about having Nick and Julie helping lead our community efforts for this year’s event,” said Owen Bailey, chief executive officer of USA Health. “Their involvement with the business community will help to bring home the relationship of having a thriving business environment and the availability of the services of a Level 1 Trauma.”
A Night Honoring Heroes is set for Oct. 15 at the Mobile Convention Center. People interested in becoming a sponsor for the event or purchasing tickets can contact Leila Nichols at 251.460.7491 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
