Pre-hospital care is a vital component of our EMS system and a dynamic field of medicine. Our pre-hospital emergency care system matches the needs of the patients to the available resources so that optimal, prompt and cost-effective care can be offered.
Trauma & Burn is highly invested in the pre-hospital care at Cook County Health and the City of Chicago. We currently serve as training sites for Navy Corpsmen, the Malcom X Paramedic Program, and EMT-B and EMT-P.
Beyond our role as a training site, we offer several public courses aimed at improving the outcomes of our patients though pre-hospital care. We encourage all emergency service personnel to consider these programs or certifications.
