When every moment counts our ambulance and emergency teams respond with expert critical care.
St. Vincent Ambulance Services delivers both pre-hospital and in-hospital emergency care through a staff of Paramedics and EMT-Basics. Our mission is to deliver the highest standard of rural healthcare in the field, our emergency department, and for our inpatients.
The ambulance staff serves in an expanded role at St. Vincent Hospital to not only serve the community where they are when needed but also to work alongside doctors and nurses in the hospital.
We will care for you from when you call 911, in the emergency room and up to discharge or transfer to a higher level of care.
What we do…
