EMS – Pre-Hospital Care Providers
First Floor, Memorial Building
(860) 496-6656

 

The world of EMS is changing and growing rapidly, and the expertise and scope of practice of these important healthcare providers has evolved and progressed to enable the delivery of better care to communities. However, with the expanded responsibilities and roles comes much more responsibility. EMS training requirements continue to increase so the need for continuous education to assure the provider competencies remain high.

The Charlotte Hungerford Hospital has designed a professional CME curriculum for CHH sponsored paramedics and intermediates to meet the state OEMS requirements, national standards, and those needed to maintain NREMT certification. It is committed to assisting the EMS professional in advancing their skills and keeping them current with trends and developments in the emergency care field.
