Community Health Paramedicine is a group of personnel within WCEMS that provide non-emergency care to the citizens of Williamson County. These Paramedics receive specialized training as a community health worker as well as advanced paramedicine training in CHF, hypertension, diabetes, COPD/Asthma and Seizures. The goal of the group is to connect all Williamson County citizens to primary health services, thereby decreasing their reliance on 911 for primary care. In addition, the team provides specialized monitoring for medically complicated patients in their homes in order to reduce preventable hospital readmissions. Applicants can apply for a community health position if they meet the minimum requirements and a position is available. All members must be system credentialed prior to moving to the Community Health Paramedic trucks.
