Emergency Medical Services
One of the most critical and visible departments within Commonwealth Health Corporation and The Medical Center is Emergency Medical Services (EMS). 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.
It is also comforting to know that Medical Center EMS is one of only two EMS services in Kentucky accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS). Accreditation by CAAS is the gold standard for EMS.
Medical Center EMS also has received the American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline® EMS Bronze Award that recognizes its commitment and success in implementing specific quality improvement measures for the treatment of patients who suffer a severe heart attack known as a STEMI (ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction).
