Emergency Medical Services (EMS) assists communities with ensuring access to, and availability of, emergency care. The Delta Region Community Health Systems Development (DRCHSD) Program goal is to help create a local coordinate system of care that includes community joint partners working in collaboration with first responders and leaders for our participating hospitals and/or clinics.

To support this goal, the DRCHSD Program will provide an EMS assessment to participating hospitals and/or clinics to help their EMS providers in identifying opportunities for improvements, which includes needed resources to fill gaps in local clinical services and better processes that enhance coordination of services.

This project is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of a financial assistance award totaling $10,000,000 with 100% funded by HRSA/HHS and $0 amount and 0% funded by non-government sources.
