McLean County EMS Accredited

October 09, 2013; Clearwater, FL – At its meeting on September 20, 2013, the Board of Directors of the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) granted initial accreditation to the Advocate BroMenn Medical Center, OSF St Joseph Medical Center, and McLean County Area EMS System Paramedic Training Program Consortium in Bloomington, Illinois.  The CAAHEP Board acted upon the accreditation recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP).

Through the accreditation process, which includes a thorough review of the program, curriculum, faculty and staff, as well as a site visit of the program, the Advocate BroMenn Medical Center, OSF St Joseph Medical Center, and McLean County Area EMS System Paramedic Training Program Consortium was determined to be in substantial compliance with the nationally approved  Standards and Guidelines for educational programs as established by the Emergency Services Professions.

According to Greg Scott, Director of the McLean County Area EMS System, "The accreditation process has provided standards that will assist our program to continue to train Paramedics that will deliver high quality patient care."  He continued, "We are very honored to receive this accreditation and will continue to strive for excellence within our EMS training program.

In addition to conducting Emergency Medical Technician Paramedic training, the Advocate BroMenn Medical Center, OSF St. Joseph Medical Center, and McLean County Area EMS System Consortium provides medical oversight activities to over 950 licensed Emergency Medical personnel; 40 emergency medical response agencies; and four dispatch centers.  The Consortium conducted nearly 1,500 emergency medical education hours during 2012.

CAAHEP accredits nearly 2,100 educational programs that prepare health professionals in 23 different disciplines.  Accreditation is one step in a process that is meant to protect the public and ensure a supply of qualified health care professionals.  For more information about CAAHEP and accreditation, visit www.caahep.org .
