Every April one of the biggest festivals in the United States takes place. The festival honors the memory of the heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. From April 16 to April 26, 2015 the city will celebrate the diverse heritage, culture and spirit that make the city of San Antonio what it is today.
With several different ways to celebrate Fiesta® it's important to remember safety precautions and ask for help when you need it.
Methodist Healthcare San Antonio has facilities all over San Antonio and will be providing emergency healthcare services during Fiesta®. At any time during the two week long celebration should you feel the need to get some help you can use the the new Methodist ER app to find the nearest emergency service station near you. Cool, right?
Whether you ate too much, drank too much or got too much sun the folks at Methodist Healthcare can help you keep calm and Fiesta®. "We want people to have a good time, but should a medical emergency arise, we want our community to know that our new app will help them get the help they need quickly and conveniently", says Palmira Allerano, Vice President, Marketing & Public Relations at Methodist Healthcare.
