Valley Emergency Medical Services (VEMS) provides an important and necessary service to the communities to which it is dedicated. We strive to deliver excellent pre-hospital clinical care in a sensitive environment while always being aware of the patient’s dignity and needs. VEMS is the State Certified provider of Advanced Life Support for the geographic catchment area of Ansonia, Seymour, Oxford, Shelton, Derby and Monroe. As such VEMS paramedics have an average of 8 years of field experience. Our program is so successful that several teaching institutions in the State of Connecticut have chosen VEMS for their didactic and field training requirements; Yale New Haven Hospital and Bridgeport Hospital to name two. VEMS as a non-profit 501(c)3 entity is recognized on both the state and federal level of its non-profit status. VEMS has learned to achieve success while maintaining costs lower than the local agencies. It is imperative that VEMS continues to stay on the fore-front of new technologies in pre-hospital care. It is our responsibility to ensure that every resident is afforded the optimal care available at all times.

A healthy community is a rich community. When we enjoy good health, when we engage in wellness activities – and when we support people living with disease or disabilities -- there are profound physical and psychological benefits. Simply put, we are all stronger and happier. To support the health and wellness initiatives in your community is to put good health within reach of all.
