[ARCHIVED] Onslow County Emergency Medical Services Achieves Gold Plus Recognition

ONSLOW COUNTY, NC— Onslow County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) has received a prestigious recognition from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.  Onslow County EMS has been awarded the Mission: Lifeline® EMS Gold Plus Award for their quality measures in improving care for patients who have suffered a severe heart attack (STEMI patients).  This award recognizes Onslow County EMS for attaining 75% or higher performance on each Mission: Lifeline® EMS required achievement measure for two years.  This award honors the paramedics and EMTs who can quickly identify suspected heart attack patients, promptly notify an area hospital, and implement rapid response from hospital personnel.  Onslow County’s EMS staff works diligently to ensure heart attack patients get to the appropriate facility right away; this high level of efficiency helps save a patient’s heart muscle.

“This is an example of our team’s ability to provide comprehensive, high-quality care to our community,” said David Grovdahl, Onslow County EMS Division Head. “It’s nice for our paramedics and EMTs to be recognized for their outstanding efforts they provide 24/7.”

This is the fourth consecutive year that Onslow County EMS has received the highest degree of the Mission: Lifeline® EMS Award from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.
