Who Was Betty Woods
Betty Ann Woods was an employee of Kalispell Regional Medical Center for 28 years, starting out in the intensive care unit and taking her first A.L.E.R.T. flights as a cardiac nurse in 1982. She transferred to the emergency department to fulfill her dream of flying A.L.E.R.T. on a regular basis. Betty felt that emergency services were the backbone of a community and helped to offer training to many in the EMC fields. She also sat on the board of Three Rivers Ambulance. Betty took her last page on September 10, 2006. Gone, but not forgotten.
