I realized the other night just how lucky we are. I was at a Little League baseball game in one of our area towns when a pitcher was hit by a ball that came right back at him after he pitched! There were a few anxious moments for everyone in the complex, not to mention his mom, dad and teammates. The coaches called 911 right away and there was an ambulance there in just minutes.

We're lucky because of all of the great emergency rescue crews we have and the fact that we have Southcoast Hospital Groups. How many cities or towns can claim to have the coverage we have? Southcoast Hospitals Group features three hospitals, Charlton Memorial in Fall River, St. Luke's in New Bedford and Tobey Hospital in Wareham.

Here's a link to the different locations and what they offer.
