1907: Original Littleton Hospital under construction

Emergency Medical Services System in the Littleton Area

Although Littleton Regional Healthcare's Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system is "state of the art" today, this system had a humble beginning in the late 1950s. In the early days, these pre-hospital services operated alongside Littleton Hospital to give patients who were injured or extremely sick a better chance to recover fully. Over the years, both hospital and pre-hospital emergency services have matured to the great organizations we know today. The physicians, nurses, ambulance drivers, first responders, public safety professionals, dispatchers, and EMS providers are a closely knit community, always keeping the welfare of the patients first.
