Paramedicine program reaches out to community

The program is in its fourth year and it has been a great resource for the community!

From Linda Dillman of the Columbus Messenger:

“Hamilton Township residents needing follow-up care after a trip to the emergency room could find assistance as close as the township fire department as part of a “Community Paramedicine” program.

Hamilton Township Fire Department Capt. Wade Edwards, the township’s designated community paramedic, said the program is part of an evolving model of community-based health care. Paramedics can function outside their customary emergency duties in ways that enhance access to primary care for medically under served populations and/or facilitate more appropriate use of emergency care resources.

There is no cost to the patient.”
