Community Health

Innovative Services to Improve Patient Care

REMSA Health’s Community Health Programs create new care and referral pathways to assure patients receive the safest and most appropriate levels of quality care. Our programs include the Nurse Health Line and the Alternative Destination Transport.

In cooperation with the community’s healthcare partners, these programs safely improve patient-centered care, improve patient satisfaction, and reduce ambulance transports, emergency department visits, hospital readmissions, and overall healthcare costs.

Nurse Health Line

Nurse Health Line provides assessment, care guidance and referral to health care and community services via a dedicated non-emergency number. This service is available to those whose insurance and healthcare providers are a contracted partner with REMSA Health.

Alternative Destination Transport

Alternative Destination Transport program provides alternative pathways of care for 9-1-1 patients, including transport of patients with low acuity medical conditions directly to urgent care centers and clinics, transport of inebriated patients directly to the detoxification center, and transport of psychiatric patients directly to a mental health hospital.
