About the Position:

Through decades of experience in the industry, our teams deliver the highest standard of care to every patient. The team's ambulances offer the latest in safety and patient care equipment. This allows our crews to care for any patient in the state of Indiana. Bedford Hospital EMS currently provide transport and 911 services throughout their region.

As a crew member, you'd work with groundbreaking technology available in our ambulances. Outside of top-of-the-line technology, there are also several growth opportunities within the organization throughout the state.

The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) plays a meaningful role in providing immediate emergency care and transport of the critically ill or injured via an emergency medical vehicle. These candidates will respond to the scene of reported emergencies, nonemergency, and inter-hospital transports. During these transports, EMTs provide efficient and immediate basic life support care to the patient. This support is provided in a range of different settings including at the scene, en-route to, and in, the hospital.

While working as an EMT with IU Health, there are opportunities to perform non-invasive procedures and BLS functions. These could include the following: cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillation (AED), and bone splinting.

Outside of working with groundbreaking technology and equipment, team members have various chances to continue their growth and education. Whether looking to gain more certifications or licensures or go back to school. IU Health offers opportunities for these, as well as tuition reimbursement for benefited team members.
