Pacific EMS provides a valuable service to the communities that we serve throughout British Columbia and Alberta by ensuring that important public ambulance resources such as the British Columbia Ambulance Service and Alberta Health Services EMS are able to focus on their core priorities – delivering 911 emergency ambulance services to the public.
As a private ambulance provider, Pacific EMS fills the gap between the public and private sectors by providing in-demand services for hospital transfers, non-emergency patient transport, and private ambulance standby using our industrial ambulances, Paramedics and First Aid Attendants.
Pacific EMS provides licensed Emergency Medical Responders, Primary Care Paramedics, Occupational First Aid Level 3 attendants and Level 3 First Responders with opportunities to earn income and to work on important projects for our clients.
Our clients in the hospital transfer, patient transportation, first aid and private ambulance sectors expect a great deal from Pacific EMS, and we take great pride in providing reliable, quality patient care and exceptional customer service.
When working for Pacific EMS, we require that our Paramedics and team members provide the highest standard of patient care at all times, while working within their scope of practice license level, under the supervision of our Medical Director.
Staff at Pacific EMS always keep safety as top of mind, making sure that all aspects of our Health, Safety and Environment program are strictly adhered to while at work. When clients such as BC Hydro ask Pacific EMS to provide them with Industrial Ambulances and First Aid Attendants, they expect the very best and want to make sure that Pacific EMS team members are always adhering to the highest standards.
What a Typical Day Looks Like
No two days are the same when working as a Paramedic with Pacific EMS. You may transfer a patient from the Vancouver General Hospital to Harborview Medical Centre in Seattle, pick up a patient at Peace Health St Joseph’s Medical Centre in Bellingham and transfer to them to the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre, or compete a non-emergency patient transfer from the Foothills Hospital in Calgary to the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton, or transfer a patient from one care home in Calgary to a new care home in Lethbridge.
Pacific EMS works with notable air ambulance companies and third party companies such as One Call Medical Transports to transfer patients from hospitals to the airport as part of medevac flight operations, and we work on behalf of Health Authorities such as Interior Health when asked to move patients home to Alberta.
The next day, you could be staffing one of our ambulances and proving standby medical services on the set of a film or TV production, or heading up to a remote location to provide industrial ambulance and first aid coverage to one of our corporate clients.
PATIENT TRANSFER SERVICES
Some of the most common ground ambulance transfers that we undertake are:
Private COVID-19 Testing
As a premier medical transportation service in BC and Alberta, our certified medical team can also provide on-site COVID-19 testing for workers or for travel requirements. Our ambulatory team can test you during your medical transport from one location to another or provide private PCR testing and rapid testing services with certified lab results to allow you to test your employees while they are on the move or coming through YVR airport and needing private Covid test results to board flights for work.
