AHS Community Paramedics provide at risk patients immediate access to health care in the community by collaborating with available family and specialized physician services.
This new, innovative program is for patients with chronic health concerns that prevent them from accessing available health care services.
These specially trained paramedics, in consultation with physicians, bring a broad range of medical services to the home that prevents the need for an emergency department visit.
“The Community Paramedic Program has prevented many unnecessary emergency visits while providing advice, interventions and support to patients and their families.”
Dr. Asaph Ksienski, Hospitalist
“Collaboration with the Community Paramedic Program was an invaluable extension of the work our clinic normally does.”
Dr. Ian Scott, CCDMC
“The Community Paramedic service is reassuring for patients who need close monitoring if hospitalization is not yet an option.”
Dr. Jasbir Bedi, Family Physician
