Update: Man Reunites With 3 Off-Duty Mercy Health Nurses Who Saved His Life

On March 2, you learned on our news blog about three off-duty Mercy Health Muskegon nurses – Rose Emmons, Cindra Bringedahl and Martha Tutak – who resuscitated a man who had collapsed in downtown Muskegon at a local restaurant.

Michael Thaler received care from our health system and, on May 17, Thaler was reunited for a news conference with the nurses and the physician who cared for him. Local media were there to cover the reunion. Media coverage for the reunion garnered more than 255,000 views on local television news, a feature story on the front cover of the Muskegon Chronicle, as well as heavy social media engagement.
