Baseline Review of Ambulance Services and EMS in the Town of North Hempstead, NY

CGR completed, in partnership with Hofstra University, a major research engagement that looked at current ambulance and emergency medical services for the Town of North Hempstead (population 220,000) in NY’s Nassau County, where fire departments represent the most numerous emergency medical providers in the community. CGR completed extensive data collection of fire department/district finances, operations, resources and deployment strategies. The study culminated in 2 final reports: a) delineating current challenges to baseline operations and b) identifying specific short- and long-term options for enhancing service quality and addressing the system’s cost structure. The second report pointed out that the community is foregoing more than $3 million in potential annual revenue under the current structure, and presented a structural model that would allow the community to realize this revenue.
