MORGANTOWN -

The Jon Michael Moore Trauma Center's third annual "Night Of Recognition" celebrated the lives of four patients treated at the trauma center and honored the people who saved their lives.

Teamwork was the running theme of the evening when Ruby Memorial's trauma center recognized people from all spectrums of the healthcare industry.

Guest speakers came to share their stories and say how important they think it is that people in the healthcare industry work together.

"The idea is it takes more than just one or two people to take care of these patients. It takes approximately seventy five different types of healthcare professionals to get these patients back on the road to recovery," said Alison Wilson, Trauma Center's Director.

The night recognized first responders who arrive on the scene to doctors and nurses to the rehabilitation staff. Corporal A. S. Loudin almost died five months ago when he was shot in the line of duty, once in the chest and once in the back. Around twenty people were recognized for working on his case.

"I think it's wonderful for us... our family to be able to just step back and say thank you to everybody. There was so many people involved and we never got a chance to just say thank you to everybody and this is our way to do that and it's just a great, great opportunity," Corporal Loudin said.

The other patients included Thomas Bonar, 51, who was injured in an ATV accident, Larry Wise, 58, who was injured while working in a coal mine and Marissa Wolfe, 10, who was injured in a bike accident.

Wilson was also recognized as an honorary state trooper for her work with the trauma center.
