Northwest Ohio EMS


Dedicated to Quality Prehospital Care

The Northwest Ohio EMS Consortium brings together EMS resources from a number of different agencies in the Northwest portion of Ohio. The consortium consists of multiple EMS medical directors from Fulton County Medical Center, Mercy Defiance Medical Center, Mercy St Charles Medical Center and faculty with the emergency medicine residency program affiliated with Mercy St Vincent Medical Center and Premier Physician Services. This partnership allows the EMS medical directors to collaborate and share resources. It also allows each service to which we provide medical direction to benefit from the collective expertise of each EMS faculty member.

The Consortium currently provides an on-line EMS medical control 24-hours a day to assist with complicated on-line medical direction issues as well as assisting crews in obtaining follow-up on interesting cases.

EMS services anywhere in Northwest Ohio may contract with the consortium to have the consortium serve as their full-time medical director, or may choose to have the consortium provide specific functions such as on-line medical direction, assistance with quality assurance, assistance with special skill development, or short-term medical direction coverage when the regular medical director is unavailable. Additional services offered include full access to consortium developed protocols, training, 24 hour on-line medical control and quality assurance programs The purpose of this website is to provide both the EMS crew members and surrounding hospitals, affiliated with NWO EMS, a set of “GUIDELINES” for the management, treatment, and transport of patients with a variety of illnesses and injuries.  Multiple departments and agencies in the rural and urban environment are members of the NWO EMS consortium.
