Welcome to the Morris Hospital EMS System's website for
EMS professionals. Here you will find EMS treatment protocols, updates,
training, an event calender, forms and other information relevant to regional
EMS and disaster preparedness. Morris Hospital currently has 16 agencies
working within our system and provides primary and continuing medical
education, administrative support and quality assurance.
Hi everybody and thank
you for visiting our website. We do appreciate your interest in our EMS
System and want you to feel free to contact any of our EMS staff for further
information or assistance.
We are very proud of our
recently graduated 2016-2017 paramedic class. The annual graduation
ceremony at Morris Country Club was a fitting way to congratulate the students
for a year of hard work. We wish our paramedics the best of luck on the
upcoming State Exam and in their future careers. But, there is no rest
for the wicked. The new 2017-2018 paramedic class starts up in
mid-August. We look forward to another successful academic year.
For those of you who are
not aware, lectures and practicals are now held on the Joliet Junior College
campus. Morris Hospital, our System agencies, and JJC work together to
provide an excellent education for all of our students. Our goal is not
only to produce book-smart medics, but also to send out men and women who are
competent to work on the streets.
We would like to welcome
Dan Carlascio to our already impressive education team. Dan comes to us
with over 30 years of EMS knowledge and experience. He has given cardiology
lectures to previous years' students and was so-well received. We are
happy he will be around on a more regular basis.
I would like to thank
all the people who work so hard to make this EMS System a success: from
our EMS staff members to our preceptors and field paramedics to our first
responders/basics/intermediates to the Chiefs and Coordinators........
a heart-felt thanks for
all you do.
