The AdventHealth Central Texas Heart and Vascular Center brought a much-needed treat to the Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA) in Copperas Cove in the form of an automated external defibrillator or AED.

“We are so honored to be able to partner with the ‘y’ for this project,” said Valerie Romero, director of the Cath Lab at Metroplex. “Assisting them in making their facility safer for their members is a perfect example of what we mean when we say our mission is to extend the healing ministry of Christ.”

The donated AED is now on hand for any ASYMCA member who suffers a sudden cardiac arrest.

“Knowing that we will be able to provide this level of first response assistance any member who may need it is empowering,” said Sheri Yerrington, executive director at the ASYMCA. “It means that we can truly empower our community to be healthy and confident, connected and secure in an environment that is safe.”

Metroplex presented the AED to the ASYMCA at their facility in Copperas Cove on Oct. 30.
