ETMC EMS joins an elite group of emergency providers to receive a three year accreditation from CAAS or the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services for quality patient care in America’s medical transportation system.
“ETMC EMS is the 134 agency out of 12,000 ambulance agencies worldwide to receive this accreditation,” said Tony Myers, ETMC EMS Vice President/COO. “We are very pleased that our organization has met and often exceeded the “gold standard” determined by the ambulance industry.” Only four EMS providers in Texas have received this recognition.
The CAAS standards are designed to increase operational efficiency and clinical quality, while decreasing risk and liability to the organization. The process included a comprehensive self-assessment and an independent external review and on-site visit of our EMS operation.
