Jamie Chebra on the Importance of EMS

Director of EMS at JFK Medical Center Jamie Chebra sat with Joanna Gagis on “Life & Living” to discuss the importance of ambulatory care.

Chebra believes that everyone should trust Emergency Medical Services to provide them with rapid and efficient treatment prior to arriving at the hospital.

“Basically, we are bringing the emergency department to you,” he states. “You have the advantage of staying right where you are and allowing us to bring all of that care to you.”
