Experienced Teams

CHEMS would not be able to provide exceptional patient care without its experienced and professional staff. These individuals are not only well-versed in their profession through education and proper certification, but they have a vested interest in the communities served. They are residents of Northeastern PA and many were born and raised right here in the communities they serve.Type your paragraph here. 

​CHEMS, as a whole, takes its mission to an entirely new level. This is personal; not just professional. The patients are our families, our friends, our neighbors or an extension thereof.  In addition, CHEMS strives to partner with other emergency personnel, such as fire, police and municipalities to be an integral part of the communities it serves. CHEMS is proud to partner, support and be a part of our region's 'Hometown Heroes'.
