IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (WLUC) - Representative Beau Lafave spent his Friday morning at the Dickinson County Hospital where he presented the ICU department with a Special Tribute award.
This is the first Special Tribute award Lafave has handed out.
He chose DCHS for the award to recognize the hard work the department does every day.
"The awesome news coverage that they've been getting from national organizations and accolades and gold stars of success prove that we have a great hospital here in Dickinson County,” Lafave said to TV6 News. “I wanted to recognize them and thank them for keeping not only the people of Dickinson County, but more personally the Intensive Care Unit has saved my family members lives."
Lafave credits the department for his grandfather’s life lasting 25 years longer than doctors predicted.
