On March 15, 2023 the Pennsylvania Emergency Health Services Council Board of Directors accepted the membership application for EHBEMS to join PEHSC. This statewide advocacy group serves as an independent advocate for EMS through legislation, research, and fundraising. It is our hope that joining this council will allow us to contribute to the advancement of EMS in our communities and across the state.

From the PEHSC website:

The Pennsylvania Emergency Health Services Council (PEHSC) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. The core mission of the Pennsylvania Emergency Health Services Council is to serve as an independent advisory body to The Pennsylvania Department of Health and all other appropriate agencies on matters pertaining to Emergency Medical Services. As an advocate for its diverse member organizations, PEHSC’s ultimate purpose is to foster improvements in the quality and delivery of emergency health services throughout the Commonwealth.

Pennsylvania will be a national leader in developing a unified system of high quality emergency medical services and other health services. In partnership with other organizations statewide that are involved with emergency services, PEHSC’s future role will include a heightened emphasis on advocacy and legislative liaison, outcomes research, system finances and development, public education, and resources to enhance organizational management.
