THE COMPANY THAT LEADS THE WAY IN
PRE-HOSPITAL CARE, IN THE REGION THAT LEADS THE WORLD IN MEDICAL ADVANCEMENT.
Founded in 1958 by Robert and Patricia Hess. Purchased by their sons Rob Jr and Ron Hess in 1991. Sold in 1994 to a national ambulance provider. Reestablished in 2001 by Ron Hess and Terry Finnerty, at the prodding of former employees and customers. Entered into the Third Generation in 2009 (Jason Hess, President). Expanded from 70 employees to 280 (now 60+ vehicles) between 2013-2020 by combining superior medical direction (Chief Paramedic Scott Wildenheim and former Chief Paramedic, now MD, Dr Don Spaner) with a motivated workforce and an intent focus on customer service, that is otherwise extinct in this and other industries.
As a privately held Emergency Medical Services organization covering 14 core counties spanning across Northern Ohio, communications lie at the center of everything we do. Our Communications Center never closes, because our patients and stakeholders rely on our responsiveness.
At Physicians, we invest in our people and equipment first. We are also 100% compliant with one of the most advanced pre-hospital care protocols in the nation; a protocol that is written (and updated annually) by our Chief Paramedic and a team of doctors.
In concert with University Hospitals EMS Training & Disaster Preparedness Institute, and our 4 EMS-Is on staff, we offer on-site Emergency Medical Technician courses, American Heart Association (AHA) CPR courses, continuing education and refresher courses year-round.
