Hat’s Off to Vineall Ambulance

Thank you Vineall Ambulance for being MidState’s first agency to join the NYS PECC program! A Pediatric Emergency Care Coordinator (PECC) is an individual/individuals who are responsible for coordinating pediatric-specific activities/trainings to improve how we handle and transport our youngest patients. The PECC may be a member of your agency, or work at a county or region level and serve more than one agency.
