Emergency Care

At Kimball Health Services, we're committed to delivering comprehensive emergency care services for life's unexpected emergencies. When you choose Kimball Health Services, you're not just receiving medical care; you're becoming a part of our promise to protect your health.

As Nebraska’s first Basic Level Trauma Center, it's our mission to save lives, ease pain, and ensure the best possible outcomes during emergencies. Our facility and staff have the expertise and resources to handle a wide range of emergencies, from accidents and injuries to cardiac events.

Emergency Medical Services (EMS)

At Kimball Health Services, we understand that emergencies don't follow a set schedule or announce their arrival. Since November 2022, Kimball County has entrusted Kimball Health Services EMS to provide emergency medical services.

We respond to approximately 750 calls yearly, demonstrating our readiness and reliability. With a robust team of around 20 dedicated personnel, we operate 3 ambulances and one supervisor vehicle.

Our ambulances cater to two essential levels of response:

  • Basic Life Support (BLS): Our BLS ambulances are staffed with at least one Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). EMTs play a vital role in our emergency response system and are capable of managing situations such as bleeding, shock, pregnancy/delivery, and minor injuries. They are your first line of care during 911 calls, special events, and transfers to other regional facilities.
  • Advanced Life Support (ALS): Our ALS ambulances feature a minimum of one paramedic equipped with advanced skills and training to deliver life-saving procedures in a pre-hospital setting. Paramedics can handle complex scenarios involving cardiac complications, airway management, and invasive procedures, ensuring that you receive the highest standard of care right in the field. Our ALS ambulances are always ready to respond to emergencies and patient transfers to regional facilities.

We ensure our staff stays up-to-date on the latest practices and standards and provide in-house training for:

  • Basic Life Support
  • Advanced Cardiac Life Support
  • Pediatric Advanced Life Support
  • Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support
  • And more

When lives depend on the skills of emergency personnel, rest assured that our highly trained EMTs and paramedics will be ready to respond promptly. 

What constitutes an emergency?

An emergency is a sudden, unexpected, and often critical situation that demands immediate attention and medical intervention. Emergencies can range from the unexpected, like falls, car or sports accidents, to life-altering situations, such as cardiac events or traumatic injuries.

An emergency typically involves a threat to life, limb, or well-being and requires prompt assessment and treatment to prevent severe complications or even fatalities.

Emergencies can involve any condition where timely medical care is crucial for the best possible outcome. This can include:

  • Accidents 
  • Injuries 
  • Acute illnesses
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Chest pain
  • Breathing difficulties
  • And more

During these unpredictable moments, it is crucial to know you're in capable hands. Kimball Health Services will be your capable and compassionate partner in navigating this path.
