Chestnut Hill Hospital Provides First Aid to PGA Golfers and Visitors

Chestnut Hill Hospital nurses with special emergency care training and primary care physicians provided care for the PGA’s Constellation Seniors Tour at the Philadelphia Cricket Club, June 7-12. Chestnut Hill Hospital cared for visitors at three first aid tents on the course. Tents were equipped to handle most emergencies, but most folks just needed a little extra sun screen or a bandage. Well-known Chestnut Hill physician Marc McKenna, MD, family practice/sports medicine, provided medical coverage for PGA players and staff. (from L: Maggi Grecco, MSN, ANP-C, and Marie Minnick, RN)
