EMS moves at an incredible pace, and the ability to keep up with a rapidly changing clinical landscape requires several different areas to operate in unison.

Recently, Sunstar Paramedics in Pinellas County, Fla., saw demands for transports continuing to rapidly increase, and more than 50 new paramedics were needed to keep up. New employees were being hired, but it was taking too long to clear them and some of the new recruits weren’t meeting Sunstar Paramedics’ high standards.

The recruiting and training process needed to change, and to do so, Sunstar Paramedics took an innovative approach-restructuring its clinical services department that not only resulted in improved recruitment, onboarding and training processes but also enhanced the quality of care provided by new hires.
