The IU Health South Central Region Emergency Medical Services team will integrate with Indiana University Health LifeLine. The health system says the integration will make Indiana University Health LifeLine the largest EMS provider in the state.
IU Health says the integration, which is set to become official on Thursday, will streamline systems, equipment, and operations. The integration will also provide south central hospitals and providers expanded medical transport services.
“We are excited for the IU Health SCR EMS team to join the LifeLine family,” said Cory Hall, statewide director of IU Health LifeLine. “They have a rich history of providing quality emergency medical services to Hoosiers. We will surely draw on their experience and expertise.”
The IU Health SCR EMS serves Monroe, Orange and Lawrence counties with 911 emergency medical services, advanced life support, basic life support and assisted medical transport. IU Health LifeLine has six critical care bases, five helicopters and provides 911 EMS services, advanced life support and basic life support in more than seven Indiana counties.
