In addition to caring for emergency patients at Nassau University Medical Center, NuHealth’s Emergency Department also provides training to Nassau County Emergency Medical Services and Police. NUMC’s Ambulance Division provides Advanced Life Support transportation services to patients requiring transfer to and from our East Meadow campus and outlying facilities such as A. Holly Patterson Extended Care. Our nearly 50 field and supervisory professionals hold certifications ranging from EMT-Basic through EMT-Paramedic. In addition to the required New York State curriculum, our members are trained to utilize advanced medical equipment not routinely found on all ambulances, including medication infusion pumps, artificial ventilators, and pulse oximetry.
