Mission

Wheeling Hospital’s Office of Pre-Hospital Care is a coordinated effort among the various departments to provide expanded community outreach education.

Purpose

To maintain a central location for customers to acquire information:

  • Education for EMS, nurses, and other allied health professionals, including CPR, PALS, ACLS, TNCC, ENPC.
  • Prevention: schools, public sports programs, fall prevention, etc.
  • Consultation: advice on where can equipment be purchased, instruction of certain equipment, etc.
  • Outreach: Blood Drives, Dad’s Boot Camp, Safe Sitter, Safety Town, Lifeline, etc.

Requests

To make it easy for area organizations to request public education programs, the office serves as the single contact. A pre-hospital provider, fire and EMS squads, community organizations, schools and other entities can access the Office of Pre-Hospital Care. A dedicated operator or voice-activated message will document the program request and forward it to the appropriate department.

Within 24 business hours, the agency requesting the program will be contacted to discuss and schedule the event. The program offers an easily accessible, one-stop office where people can call for information on education programs and training.

The Office of Pre-Hospital Care will provide assistance in four areas: education, outreach, consultation and injury prevention. Programs offered include pre-hospital symposiums, care conferences, in-service education; emergency care system development; injury prevention; American Heart Association life support training; and CPR.
