Hamilton County Emergency Medical Services Opens New Medic 3 Station

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Hamilton County Emergency Medical Services opened its new medic station in Enterprise South Industrial Park, 7123 Discovery Drive. The station, for Medic 3 personnel officially opened on Thursday, with a full crew and ambulance services.

The new location provides quarters for crew members, shift captains and one ambulance unit. The new location will offer Medic 3 crews and the HCEMS shift captains faster access for the medical service to response to its district calls and a more strategic location to provide services surrounding the east side of Hamilton County. The new station, built to the City and County ADA specification codes by the Hamilton County Engineering and Maintenance Department, was designed and built with modern features for eco-friendliness, up to date technology for utilities and keyless door entry among other features. The new station was also designed so that future expansions to the facility could provide space for additional ambulance units.

“While we continue to update our medical services annually, this is the first new station with eco-friendly features in over five years,” said Hamilton County Emergency Medical Director Ken Wilkerson. “The location of this station in the eastern part of our county provides for more efficient access for our crews serving the area; as well as, our shift captains serving the entire county. It is critical that we, as the emergency medical service for Hamilton County, continue to update our facilities and technology to maintain and expand the quality of emergency medical care provided in our community.”

Medic Station 3 provides emergency medical services throughout Hamilton County, but its primary district includes Highway 58 and Bonny Oaks areas.  Celebrating 30 years of service as the 9-1-1 provider for Hamilton County, HCEMS has 13 Medic Stations strategically located throughout Hamilton County, with over 130 emergency medical personnel. Last year, HCEMS responded to over 38,000 calls.
