Dr. Taylor Ratcliff Named New WilCo EMS Medical Director

Dr. Taylor Ratcliff with Baylor Scott & White Healthcare has been named the new medical director for Williamson County Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Dr. Ratcliff will be the county’s third medical director since the founding of the service in 1975. Dr. Ratcliff is replacing Dr. Jeff Jarvis who has accepted the position as chief medical officer and system medical director at MedStar in Fort Worth.

Dr. Ratcliff is an emergency medicine physician at Baylor Scott and White Medical Center – Temple. He attended medical school at Texas Tech University Health Science Center and completed his residency in emergency medicine through the Texas A&M emergency medicine residency program in Temple. He is board certified in emergency medicine and emergency medical services by the American Board of Emergency Medicine Services. Dr. Ratcliff serves as medical director for other local agencies. He began his career in medicine as a paramedic in Lubbock.

“Prehospital medicine and emergency care is rapidly evolving, and I am honored to join a team that is providing high-quality, cutting-edge care to the residents of Williamson County.  The EMS team, the associated first responders and Dr. Jarvis have developed an excellent system, and I am excited to help maintain that excellence into the future,” said Dr. Ratcliff.

“We are excited to have Dr. Ratcliff become our new medical director.  He is well known in Texas as an EMS advocate and medical director.  He will ensure that we are able to continue to provide pre-eminent care to our patients,” said Williamson County EMS Director Mike Knipstein. 

Williamson County EMS is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS). The service operates 22 response resources with approximately 130 paramedics.
