Louisville, KY. July 2014. KY One Health has provided the necessary equipment to upgrade BCEMS' current inventory of 12-lead EKGs for the ability to transmit. Once in place, paramedics in the field can capture critical data about the patient's condition and wirelessly transmit it to the appropriate hospital. This will give staff time to efficiently prepare for the patient's impending arrival. "Without a doubt this program will save lives by streamlining the process from patient point of contact to arrival at the Emergency Department." Raleigh Shelton, Director
Hardinsburg, KY. August 2014. BCEMS has begun construction of an ancillary building on the same campus as Station One.
