Betty Hubbard-Gardner serves as lieutenant, night supervisor and shift supervisor with Canandaigua Emergency Squad. A Canandaigua native, Betty joined the squad in 1998 and spent 10 years on the team before taking a hiatus from 2008 to 2017. This year marks Betty’s 20th year in emergency medicine.

Her most memorable moment with CES came when responding to a patient who was in full cardiac arrest. Betty and her team transported him to the hospital and sadly anticipated he would pass away; however, he made a full recovery and Betty was able to meet him at his home.

“I’d never had that experience before,” she recalls. “We spend all those years training, and then for this one person, we were able to make a difference.”
