We Are EMS!
Barnes-Kasson Hospital is proud to highlight its Emergency Medical Services as this quarter’s Departmental Feature. Comprised of seven paramedics and five emergency medical technicians, our EMS staff provides Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support pre-hospital care, lifesaving interventions, and inter-facility transportation services on a daily basis.
This department of highly trained professionals is led by EMS Supervisor and paramedic Anthony Landon. Paramedics include Scott Baker, Kevin Cron, C. Jason Larsen, Matthew Post, Scott Ramage, and Chad Wallace. EMT’s include John Ball Jr, Ariana Hagopian, Robin Holmes, Erin Van Winkle, and Sandra Yushinsky.
Barnes-Kasson’s Emergency Medical Services provides primary Advanced Life Support services and backup Basic Life Support services throughout Susquehanna County and Northern Wayne County. We provide backup BLS coverage for those times when volunteer units are unavailable. We primarily assist the volunteer services of Susquehanna, Thompson, Great Bend, New Milford, Harford, and Northern Wayne.
In addition to responding to emergency medical calls we also conduct inter-facility transfers when patients need to be transported to or from Barnes-Kasson. We also have the ability to transfer patients from our Emergency Department when they require a higher level of care. During the summer months, an ambulance crew is stationed trackside at Penn Can Speedway each week of the races.
