About Northwest Community Emergency Medical Services System (NWC EMSS)

    March, 2017 NWC EMSS System Report -
Note:  To read previous reports, please select the EMSS System reports on the left hand side of this page.

The Northwest Community EMS System is composed of a Resource Hospital (Northwest Community Healthcare), five associate hospitals, and 24 EMS Provider Agencies (see System Directory) who employ over 1000 paramedics, 200 EMTs, Emergency Medical Responders (EMRs), and Emergency Medical Dispatchers (EMDs).


System members collaborate to provide integrated, evidence-based quality EMS care and services to over 68,000 patients per year in the northwest suburbs of Chicago (see Standards of Practice tab). On-line medical control is provided by Emergency Communication Registered Nurses (ECRNs) and emergency physicians at each System hospital.


In addition to patient care services, the System’s second major service line involves the provision of entry-level and continuing education to EMTs, paramedics, and ECRNs (See Education tab).


We have the distinction of being the first Advanced Life Support EMS System in Illinois and the first multi-community EMS system in the country.
