EMS Center of Excellence

Premier Health is proud to announce the establishment of the EMS Center of Excellence. The EMS Center of Excellence is the result of months of strategic planning that will provide best practices across the system to pre-hospital providers in our region. The EMS Center of Excellence is built on five pillars.

These pillars promote excellence in education and quality of patient care under the EMS medical direction within the Center of Excellence.

EMS advisory board

The EMS advisory board is a group of pre-hospital providers that span the region in emergency medicine who work cooperatively to identify and develop process improvement for EMS and our emergency rooms.

EMS Education and Training

Our eight EMS coordinators have years of experience and vast knowledge that is shared through continuing education. Lectures and classes are built around available resources including Level I and Level III Trauma Centers; CareFlight  air medical transport service; a mobile education lab; Cardiology and stroke expertise; high risk maternity; and three EMS continuing education sites approved by the State of Ohio.

EMS Quality of Care

The EMS Center of Excellence provides quality information on stroke, AMI, and trauma on an ongoing basis and as the need arises. If you have a quality question related to patient care, we are available to assist and trend results. We can also conduct confidential case reviews if requested.

EMS Medical Director Resource Center

If an EMS department is in need of an EMS medical director, the Center of Excellence can provide one.

EMS Outreach Coordinators

The EMS outreach coordinators are now located under one roof and have been able to combine resources that allow for Premier Health to strengthen the quality and ability to develop and build relationships with our partner EMS agencies. This also allows for a more coordinated effort for follow up to improve the service Premier Health provides.
