" After over twelve years in private and public Emergency Medical Services, I've come to the realization that there is a major flaw in how things operate. Most corporate businesses care more about their bottom lines than bettering their employees' and customers' experiences. I started Veteran Emergency Services to change the game of private Emergency Medical Services in the greater Philadelphia region. I hope to showcase our quality and service and to one day expand into being the leading private Emergency Medical Service provider. I understand you do need to be profitable to succeed, but why sacrifice quality or compassion?
At Veteran Emergency Services, we seek out current and former Military to fill all of our positions. So far I have spent eight years in the Army and am currently enlisted with the Army National Guard; therefore I understand the work ethic and determination of a Veteran. We only hire individuals who show compassion and strive for the best quality of care of the patient, equipment and themselves. We see our patients and employees as family, not simply as a number or a dollar figure. We enter an individual's life at a critical point where nothing seems to be going right... whether they have just been in an accident, during an illness, just after surgery or during end of life care. We pledge to treat everyone as if they were our own family. You wouldn't accept anything less and neither will we.
To date, we have provided hundreds of classes to Health Professionals as well as the general public, keeping their Basic Life Support and CPR skills up to date as well as introducing an advanced level of care to family members of patients who wish to be able to assist their loved ones. We look forward to beginning our next step into the world of Emergency Medical Services. "
