Community Paramedicine

Keeping you healthy, keeping you home

Learn more about our new service to help patients by providing needed assesments, care and case coordination, all aimed to prevent unnecessary ER visits, as well as hopsital admissions and readmissions. Currently, we only take cases referred to us by hospitals and providers. 

Community Paramedicine:
How it Works

Some patients require care at home that our Community Paramedics can provide, upon referral from the patient's physician or facility. 

These services include: follow-up after discharge from a hospital, fall prevention in the home, blood draws and medication reconciliation.

Kanawha County Ambulance has been praised for improving our patients' lives in the first year of our community paramedicine program. Check out the annual report.
