Emergency Medical Services
Banner Churchill's Emergency Medical Services covers more than 5,900 square miles, making us one of only two hospital-operated paramedic/EMT/EMS providers in northern Nevada.
In 2014, Banner Churchill added a new fuel-efficient ambulance to its fleet, now having four ambulances in use. The new Mercedes Benz Sprinter ambulance is smaller than the other Freightliner ambulances in the fleet, gets better gas mileage, and will be used for transporting patients to Reno.
Certified for transporting patients with blood and blood products
The Nevada State Health Division Office of Emergency Medical Systems has approved Banner Churchill Community Hospital's Emergency Medical Services to transport patients with blood and blood products being administered while performing an interfacility transfer.
We were the first EMS agency in the State of Nevada to have this approved as part of our protocols.
Equipment that provides safety for the patient and the staff
Our Bariatric Patient System allows our Emergency Medical Service crews to safely lift patients weighing more than 350 pounds into an ambulance.
