Director, EMS, Pocahontas Community Hospital, Pocahontas, IA

Colleagues remember Dan for his courage, and for his dedication to the job he loved.

"Dan was Pocahontas Community Hospital’s exceptional emergency medical services director who, despite facing his own personal challenges, continued to put the well-being of his staff and community before himself,” says Scott M.
