Emergency Medical Care Inc.
Emergency Medical Care Inc. (EMC) is a privately-owned company that manages and operates ground ambulance, telehealth medical communications, air medical transport operations and the medical communications centre in Nova Scotia.
Through a long-term performance-based contract with the provincial government’s Emergency Health Services (EHS) division, we deliver a high-quality pre-hospital care program to Nova Scotians each and every day. We achieve this through the more than 1,600 employees who work with us including highly-trained paramedics, nurses, medical communication officers and support staff.
With more than 180 ambulances and support vehicles operating out of 60+ stations and responding to more than 170,000 calls annually, we access all communities across the province in a timely and efficient manner. The EHS LifeFlight program provides even greater accessibility by responding to patients on scene or through inter-facility transports by our critical care team via helicopter, fixed wing or ground ambulance.
