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. We encouraged every agency who had representation at the Stakeholders Meetings last week either individually or as groups of agencies, to participate in the PECC Program.

If your agency, or a group of agencies in your area, are interested in participating in this program please visit the NYS PECC website at :
