At Stat/SouthCoast EMS, our extensive experience ensures that we’re ready for any challenge. From 911 response and transport to ALS/BLS transportation, we’ve got you covered. Our Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians are the best around and take great pride in what they do, so no matter the situation you’re in the best possible hands.
For more than 30 years, we’ve been the contracted 911 provider of Emergency Medical Care for the Town of Dartmouth, MA. During this time, STAT has treated and transported over 55,000 residents and visitors to local hospitals. We’ve always prided ourselves in being at the forefront of EMS practices and technology, such as being one of the first providers to become a full-time Paramedic service in the southern coast of Massachusetts. Additionally, we were the first to become fully computerized in patient care reporting (ePCR) and purchasing the first “auto-pulse,” a machine that automatically provides perfect chest compressions for a patient in Cardiac Arrest.
Our ALS Paramedic response units are equipped with the most up-to-date ALS medical equipment and technology including; the new ZOLL E-Series Cardiac Monitors with Capnography; non-invasive blood pressure monitoring; pulse oximetry and 12 lead EKG capabilities. In addition for hospital interfacility transports, we have equipped each unit with the newest Newport Medical HT-70 and multi chamber Alaris IV Pumps. All of our Paramedics are trained and certified in ACLS, PALS and IFT, so you’re in good hands.
We have a fleet of specialty ambulances to provide bariatric services, allowing patients to be transported without the stretcher ever leaving the ground. Our bariatric stretchers are 50% wider than conventional stretchers and can accommodate up to a 1,600 pound patient. Being knowledgeable of and responsive to the sensitivity and complexities of bariatric patients is one more step in assuring that Stat/SouthCoast EMS is ready to handle any of the medical transportation issues which face the healthcare industry.
