Proctor Hospital EMS System - Progress

Proctor Hospital

The following timeline is provided to give you an idea of the process of our formation of a new EMS System. This timeline assumes approval of applications and program plans and will need to be adjusted if any application or plan submitted for approval is denied.
These dates are estimates, based on our knowledge of the process. Some items may take less time to complete, others will take more time to complete. We anticipate the EMS System being operational early summer 2011. We appreciate your patience in this process and look forward to the date when we can announce that everything has been completed and the Proctor Hospital EMS System is up and running. Until then, we will note the progress as we move through the process by marking those steps which have been completed.
