Golder Ranch Fire District is proud to offer a full spectrum of mobile health services from pre-hospital emergency care and transport, to emergent and non-emergent interfacility ambulance transports. As the only fire district in the region to provide this enhanced service level to the community, Golder Ranch Fire District is currently seeking to expand the range of the mobile health options we provide.
While these services are being developed, rest assured that the professional men and women of the Golder Ranch Fire District stand ready to respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to help in your time of need.
Beginning today, Golder Ranch Fire District, in conjunction with Oro Valley Hospital, Northwest Allied Physicians, and Northwest and Avra Valley Fire Districts, is proud to announce that the Community Integrated Healthcare Program is officially available to fire district residents.
This pilot program will supplement the transitional care management program currently being used by Northwest Allied Physicians to reduce hospital re-admissions for patients with congestive heart failure (CHF), heart attack and pneumonia through a new program called the Community Integrated Healthcare Program. Community Integrated Paramedics work in concert with hospitals, primary care physicians, and specialists, to improve the overall health of the population we serve. By utilizing a combination of home visits and 24-hour support that work in tandem with the traditional 9-1-1 system, the Community Integrated Paramedic functions as both a patient advocate and the eyes and ears of the physician at the patient’s residence.
Golder Ranch Fire Community Integrated Paramedics have undergone an additional 60 hours of training in nutrition, pharmacology, lab value interpretation, smoking cessation, and disease specific processes. In addition to CHF, heart attack and pneumonia, the Community Integrated Paramedics will also address Diabetes and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
