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.
