The City of Beverly Hills Fire Department (BHFD) is proud to announce the launch of its Nurse Practitioner Program. The program is a unique and innovative Emergency Medical Service (EMS) model designed to deliver advanced, efficient, and effective healthcare in the pre-hospital setting.
BHFD's vehicle, 'Nurse Practitioner 1' (NP1), will respond to calls for service in the field. Staffed with both a Nurse Practitioner and Firefighter Paramedic with oversight from a board certified Emergency Medicine physician, NP1 is equipped with an array of medications, select laboratory diagnostics, and technical medical equipment.
Whether responding to 911 calls or following up on 'in home' patient referrals, NP1 will provide mobile urgent care as well as collaborate with primary care providers in order to optimize greater long term health and wellness within our community.
With a focus on improving patient outcomes and connecting healthcare resources to patients' specific needs, the program defines the future of Mobile Integrated Health.
The BHFD Nurse Practitioner Program is here to help. Please contact us at (310) 281-2777 should you have any of the following:
