St. Luke's University Health Network

2018 EMS Week

Pre-Hospital Services EMS Week Celebrations

EMS Week is celebrated May 20th - 26th, 2018

In 1973, President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week to celebrate EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation's communities. Back then, EMS was a new profession, and EMS practitioners had only just started to be recognized as a critical component of emergency medicine and the public health safety net.

A lot has changed since then. EMS is now firmly established as an essential public function and a vital component of the medical care continuum. On any given day, EMS practitioners help save lives by responding to medical emergencies, including heart attack, difficulty breathing, a fall or accident, drowning, cardiac arrest, stroke, drug overdose or acute illness. EMS may provide both basic and advanced medical care at the scene of an emergency and en route to a hospital. EMS practitioners care for their patients' medical needs and show caring and compassion to their patients in their most difficult moments.

St. Luke's University Health Network is proud to celebrate the men and women in EMS that play such a vital role in healthcare and the community. If it were not for the professionalism, dedication and training of these fine men and women our patients would often not have such a positive outcome. It is for this very reason that St. Luke's University Health Network is pleased to announce our 2018 EMS Week Celebrations. Come spend the week with us as we recognize your hard work throughout the year.
