As a national leader in prehospital emergency services, Rural/Metro's paramedics, EMTs, nurses and firefighters have a unique opportunity to influence the best clinical outcomes before patients arrive at the hospital.
Our National Clinical Standards for STEMI, stroke and cardiac arrest are proudly modeled after the highest standards recommended by the American Heart Association and are aligned with CMS Core Measures for vascular disease.
We have standardized and integrated our protocols for vascular care with the support of more than 50 physician medical directors who share our commitment to improving patient outcomes.
100% of our emergency responders are trained to these standards, providing expert care to nearly 10,000 patients each year with symptoms of STEMI, stroke and cardiac arrest.
This commitment is further supported with advanced technology to transmit data to receiving hospitals while patients are en route – saving precious minutes and helping to optimize clinical outcomes.
Rural/Metro is actively addressing the most urgent public health emergencies in America. We are proud to bring the highest levels of prehospital clinical care to the communities we serve – making a measurable difference in improved patient outcomes.
