Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital’s Emergency Medical Services Now Offering EMT-Basics Training

Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital’s Emergency Medical Services  Now Offering EMT-Basics Training

Starting this October 2022, Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital’s (MBSH) emergency medical services (EMS) will be offering emergency medical technician (EMT) basics training. Missouri Baptist Ambulance is an accredited training agency licensed through the Missouri Bureau of EMS.

“We’re excited to offer this EMT-basics training course for those who are interested in a career in healthcare, specifically pre-hospital emergency medicine,” said Aaron Turner, NREMT-P, FP-C, emergency services manager at MBSH. “This course promises to provide exceptional hands-on training to effectively prepare you to work as an EMT – a field that’s currently in high demand.”

EMTs are a critical part of the healthcare system, possessing broad healthcare knowledge and life-saving skill set. They provide out-of-hospital emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients, stabilizing and safely transporting patients ranging from non-emergency and routine medical transports to life-threatening emergencies. EMTs perform interventions with the basic equipment typically found on an ambulance, acting as a critical link between the scene of an emergency and the hospital.
