PACE Paramedic Service
The Paramedic Alliance for Community Emergencies, or PACE Paramedic Service, is a department of Stephens Memorial Hospital and is the only licensed-paramedic service in Oxford County.
We maintain coverage 24 hours per day, 7 days per week coverage, offering a minimum of two paramedics and two emergency medical technicians (EMTs). Paramedics are healthcare professionals who render advanced care on the scene of an emergency and in transit from an emergency scene to the hospital. Emergency medical technicians, or EMTs, are training to become paramedics and are fully capable of assisting paramedics as they utilize defibrillators, pacemakers and IV lines to stabilize emergency patients.
PACE averages a three-minute response time from the moment a 911 call is received until the ambulance leaves the PACE garage. We respond to an average of 3,000 calls per year, with a paramedic dispatched on every emergency call. We also provide paramedic assistance to other local ambulance services. PACE Paramedic Service assures that your emergency will always be treated with competent and expedient care.
