Announcements

Due to a scheduling conflict please note that all of the Region II committe meetings have been changed for the month of January. For this month only, the committees will meet on the third Thursday, 01/18/2018. The time schedule will remain the same; Training & Ed-2pm; Med Services-3p & BOD at 4p.

All Central Massachusetts EMS providers,

Saint Vincent Hospital is pleased to announce that we will be upgrading our MRI technology to offer more advanced care to our patients in the future. The process of removing and replacing our current MRI machine will be an approximately 12-16 week process beginning the week of October 23. During this period we will be utilizing a portable unit that will be located in the main entrance circle in front of the ED. Because of the configuration of the building and the portable unit it is imperative that you inform all ambulance crews that they cannot leave ambulances running while parked at the ambulance bay. Doing so will lead to exhaust fumes filling the trailer and the immediate vicinity of the trailer entrance. Please pass this along to all of your crews.

Thanks for your cooperation.
