One of our missions is to give back to the community. We accomplish it by donating our time, skills and sources. Annual participation in fund-raising events, 4th of July parades, Mardi Gras festivities and event stand-bys is our pride.
We sponsor entertainment events, such as jazz concerts to the residents and patients of the surrounding retirement communities. We donate our time and provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and First Aid training, as well as various programs aimed specifically at our friends and neighbors that have reached their golden years.
Emergency Medical Services is a branch of healthcare in which humanitarianism is one of top priorities. With the state of the economy for the past number of years, many families have no medical coverage, and are also not able to take financial responsibility for the ambulance services provided. We never turn unpaid invoices to collection agencies, and accept this as courtesy transport, by providing patients and their family members with a peace of mind.
Heavy snow storms impact South-Eastern region of Pennsylvania every winter. Such weather conditions have direct impact on Emergency Services as demand for transports outweighs available resources. Emergent inter-hospital transfers are very common during these times. At BelMed, we make every attempt to provide ground transportation to patients whose condition exceeds available resources at a given hospital. Over the years, emergency department staff of Doylestown Hospital, Grand View Hospital and Lower Bucks Hospital recognized BelMed’s availability and service during severe weather conditions.
