EMS ProfessionalsSt. John's Regional Health - SW Missouri

What began as an ambulance-only operation 19 years ago serving only south Springfield now provides services to the Missouri counties of Greene, Dallas, Lawrence, Wright, Cedar, Stone, Howell, Laclede, Camden and Shannon and Arkansas’ Carroll County. 

St. John’s total EMS program comprises 215 field and administrative staff members, 42 ambulances, a training vehicle and a trailer equipped for mass casualty and specialized training. The program staffs 25 ambulances at advanced life support level, with an additional 17 ambulances in reserve for additional staffing at special events, high census weekend or mass casualty situations. In addition to emergency medical response, they also provide local and long-distance routine transfers and special event standby, as well as support to law enforcement and fire departments by providing standby service at major incidents and tactical operations. 

The total EMS staff includes emergency medical technicians, paramedics, emergency medical dispatchers and an administrative staff in Springfield. St. John’s EMS boasts an ever-growing arsenal of tools and specialized skills that allow them to stay on the cutting edge. One such tool used in the fight against heart disease and stroke is the clot-busting drug. St. John’s was the first rural multi-county EMS system in the nation to have these drugs on board ambulances and was a leader in the use of cellular EKG technology to transmit the activity of the heart to a physician in the Emergency Trauma Center allowing the physician to initiate patient care while en route. 

St. John’s also provides EMT and paramedic training programs and refresher courses, adult and pediatric basic trauma life support courses and several continuing education courses. Quarterly competency training is provided at each service area to ensure consistent skill levels of all field personnel.
