United Ambulance Service

  • Program Representative Interviewed: Dennis Russell, Community Paramedicine Manager
  • Location: Lewiston, Auburn, and Bridgton, Maine
  • Program Overview: United Ambulance Service provides in-home inspections, safety checks, medication reconciliation, well-being checks, vaccinations, health screenings, chronic disease management education, and wound care services to participants in its community paramedicine program. Community paramedics also connect patients in the program with a primary care provider if they do not already have one. The patient population includes individuals who have limited resources and limited access to home health care, often because they lack comprehensive insurance coverage. The program has partnered with other types of organizations, including mental health and substance use services and Meals on Wheels, to connect patients to the resources they need. United Ambulance Service requires that all their community paramedics are CPC or CPT trained and currently employs 1.5 full-time employees.
