Jun 15, 2020 | Doctors In The News, Hip & Knee

Lowcountry Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine’s Dr. Eric Stem was honored with a surprise hero parade after returning from New York, where he served for three weeks in the Queens Hospital. Family, friends, and coworkers lined the hallways of Summerville Medical Center.

Stem, a colonel in the Air Force Reserve and commander of the 315th Aerospace Medicine Squadron at Joint Base Charleston, was stationed in New York to be a part of the front lines during the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Those who celebrated Dr. Stem’s return were wearing masks and waving American flags to thank him for being a healthcare hero. Stem was able to lend his talents to an area that has been hit hardest by the pandemic.

The Heroes parade was covered by many local news sources. To see all of the coverage on the Healthcare Heroes parade, see these links:
