Prehospital Services

Allegheny General Hospital

Allegheny General Prehospital Services Program provides medical direction and education to EMS providers throughout the Tri-State area.

The medical direction protocols utilized by the entire West Penn Allegheny Health System (WPAHS) affiliated structure provide for progressive medical treatment and allow paramedics ample latitude to effectively treat patients and directly influence outcomes. In addition, all CQI and command authorization initiatives are shared across the system.

Each of the individuals involved in AGH’s Pre-Hospital Services are not only currently certified as paramedics, but remain active in the provision of pre-hospital care.

AGH Medical Command

With a staff of dedicated emergency medicine physicians and pre-hospital support staff, we provide medical direction to more than 300 paramedics from 19 EMS agencies in southwestern Pennsylvania and West Virginia. All of our pre-hospital services staff are still actively involved in providing EMS care "in the streets" and average more than 25 years of experience in EMS in the clinical, educational, and management ranks.
