EMS Week honors the hundreds of thousands of EMS practitioners serving in communities across the United States. More than 36 million patients were cared for by EMS professionals nationwide in 2012. This week, we recognize their around-the-clock dedication to providing emergency care.
Emergency care professionals strive to provide seamless care, from the field to the hospital emergency department. Their commitment to ensuring that patients receive the best emergency medical care possible is essential to advancing the health, safety and well-being of our communities.
Thank you to our pre-hospital partners for the excellent patient care and community service you provide each and every day. It is a pleasure and an honor to work alongside each one of you.
