Emergency Medical Services

 

Medical Center EMS is one of the most critical and visible departments within Med Center Health. Wherever you turn, it seems like you see the ambulances rushing to an emergency or standing by at community events prepared to handle any kind of situation.

It is comforting to know that the men and women of the EMS staff are so close. These extraordinary servants of our community are available at all times to give you life-saving care whenever you are in need.
