Jeremy Benson, BS, MS-CCP, FP-C, CMTE, was named the 2018 ACCT Patient Advocate Award winner during ACCT’s Fall Leadership Meeting.
The ACCT Patient Advocate Award, sponsored by SevenBar Aviation, is given annually to recognize an outstanding ACCT member employee for his or her tireless and often unrecognized efforts to fulfill our promise to critical care transport patients.
Jeremy serves as a clinical base manager for University of Mississippi AirCare. He also extends his commitment to clinical excellence by volunteering to chair the standardization committee aimed at improving efficiency and delivery of medical care across the State of Mississippi.
Jeremy has been instrumental in developing a critical care orientation program that has doubled in size over the past two years. This growth led to the development of a critical care team that can provide advanced critical care medicine to any patient of any age for up to 12 hours in any vehicle or environment. With Jeremy’s involvement, this team has changed the way the State of Mississippi responds to disasters, high-risk events and mass gatherings.
Jeremy’s focus is intense, directed and visionary. He goes beyond his regular job duties in many ways. Team members refer to Jeremy as “the solver” and that is how he is designed, from solving small issues like trash pick-up to more complex issues with opening new bases.
The ACCT Patient Advocate Award is Sponsored by SevenBar Aviation.
