Our mission is to provide professional, compassionate and clinically excellent care to every patient, with every encounter, through a culture of integrity and continuous improvement.

The Denver Health Paramedic Division employs 157 paramedics, 16 emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and has a command staff of 30. We responded to 87,151 calls in 2014.

Through the Rita Bass Trauma and EMS Education Institute, Denver Health Paramedics provides training for EMTs and paramedics, as well as continuing education and community training. In 2014, 31 new paramedics and 109 new EMTs graduated from our prestigious program.


Denver Health Paramedics are leaders in emergency preparedness and response. In my role as Chief, it is my privilege to lead such a dynamic group of men and women who work tirelessly to care for the residents and visitors of our mile high city.

We are a division focused on providing compassionate care for our patients and families in their time of greatest need and strive to be in a continual state of readiness so that we are prepared to respond and manage any emergency situation.
