About the Mobile Stroke Unit:

These teams will be racing to the scene of patients who are having a stroke, provide a CT scan, and if needed, give lifesaving, clot-busting medicine on the spot. These team members will have the opportunity to work on a neuro ICU on wheels with some of the industry's leading equipment and technology.

• Minimum of 1 year ALS Paramedic experience preferred.
• Ability to make independent, clinical and operational competent decisions in a challenging environment.
• In addition to these requirements, the Community Paramedic for Heart & Lung Ctr also has these requirements: Requires successful completion of IUH BMH Community Paramedic/Integrated HealthCare Core Curriculum within 6 months of hire, minimum of 4 years of paramedic experience preferred.
