FOR RELEASE: June 24, 2020
Eric Bradburn, DO, a critical care trauma surgeon from Lancaster, has been recognized by the Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED) as an Everyday Hero on the Frontline of COVID-19.
PAMED’s Everyday Hero Award is designed to showcase talented physicians who probably don’t view themselves as heroes, but to patients and colleagues they are. The statewide organization is increasing the number of physicians it recognizes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. Bradburn has assumed additional leadership roles to prepare Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health for the COVID-19 pandemic. They have included the development of a team-based intensive care unit contingency schedule to allow for the care of critically ill patients during the pandemic.
“The deployment of these teams has educated providers so that they can function during a crisis and has significantly improved teamwork and communication between departments,” said physician colleague James Lamberg, DO, who nominated Dr. Bradburn for this recognition.
“This has not only prepared us to handle the pandemic, but likely has long-lasting positive benefits for the institution as a whole.”
After earning his medical degree at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Erie, Dr. Bradburn completed an internship at Wellington Regional Medical Center, a residency at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, and a fellowship at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center.
