Loyola EMSAdvancing pre-hospital care


We began as one of the three original medical resource centers designated by the State of Illinois, and have grown over the years into a multifaceted, dynamic healthcare provider. We have seen an explosion in the scope-of-practice and education within the emergency medical services profession. This is why, today, the Loyola EMS System provides education in numerous areas– EMT, Paramedic, Emergency Communications Registered Nurse, Critical Care Transport, ACLS, PALS, PHTLS, PEPP, AHDR, EMS Safety, ASLS, National Review, and Preceptor Workshops. All of these courses, and others, are designated to meet the needs of our EMS providers, and to bring the best possible care into the many communities that we serve.
