Twenty-one students were honored at Presence St. Mary’s Hospital for their successful completion of the 2013-14 Paramedic Program.
The Paramedic Program began last August in partnership with Kankakee Community College. This is one of the first hybrid programs in the state of Illinois and the first for this region. A hybrid format means there is a mix of materials and methods used for teaching.
“We are excited to bring this program to Kankakee County,” said Presence St. Mary’s EMS Coordinator, Dave Nagel. “This is not only a great benefit to Presence St. Mary’s Hospital, but the entire region will benefit from this type of well-rounded education.”
