For EMS & Pre-hospital Services
PreHospital Services Partnership with St. Anthony Hospital
With cooperation between multiple departments in the St. Anthony Hospital System, and with the support of the Colorado community, St. Anthony Hospitals Emergency Medical Services Department started one of the first full service emergency medical systems in the United States. We employ three crucial elements: a state of the art emergency department with level-one trauma capabilities, the first civilian helicopter ambulance in the nation - Flight for Life® Colorado and finally, a formal emergency medical training program that participated in and graduated the one of first national pilot EMT-Basic class.
This partnership has succeeded in educating paramedics responding to emergency situations to perform life saving techniques then transporting the stabilized patients using their fully equipped ambulances, or Flight for Life when deemed necessary, to the awaiting trauma center. This protocol is crucial in getting patients the care they need as quickly as possible, and is evident in our nationally ranked heart attack response times of door to removal of blockage in less than 50 minutes.
