  • Project Title: Community Paramedic Program
  • Program Representative Interviewed: Karla Greene
  • Location: Prosser, Washington
  • Program Overview: The Community Paramedic Program relies on certified paramedics from PMH Medical Center to carry out follow-up visits with patients. This program allows community paramedics to assist health professionals with patient follow-up when they have downtime. Patients who are unable to visit the medical center due to lack of transportation, financial costs, or insufficient time can contact the program for a home visit. Patients who have been identified by their physician as high-risk or who have missed appointments may also be contacted by the program to arrange a visit. The program has two ambulances and is staffed with two paramedics and two emergency medical technicians at all times.
