Community Paramedicine

Support for your medical needs at your home.

We take seriously the responsibility for keeping our community healthy. If you or a loved one requires more specialized medical services often associated with a trip to the hospital, our Community Paramedicine program brings some of those services directly to you in your home, avoiding duplicate services and unnecessary trips to the hospital.

We are available to answer questions, assess your needs, and help you find community resources to support your well-being. Community paramedics can also provide treatments and specialized diagnostic testing at your home.  

How the Community Paramedicine program works

  • Patients must be referred by a member of their healthcare team
  • A Community Paramedic will call the patient following hospital discharge 
  • An appointment will be scheduled after the paramedic and patient have spoken

Building relationships. Providing advanced skills.

In addition to paramedic education, Novant Health New Hanover Community Paramedics complete an additional specialized training. Community paramedics are trained to identify and handle the special needs of their patients and are able to get to know their patients, helping to put them at ease, as well as to collaborate more effectively with all members of the patient's healthcare team.
