Emergency Medical Services

The outstanding emergency medical services (EMS) providers in our area are ready to provide urgent care on the way to the hospital, with medical guidance from one of our Lima Memorial Emergency Center physicians. As a verified Level II trauma center and accredited Chest Pain Center, our Emergency Center works closely with area EMS departments to be prepared for the most urgent situations. Because Lima Memorial is committed to supporting the needs of our EMS partners, a full-time EMS Manager is available to provide outreach, quality assurance checks on received patient charts and is a liaison to the EMS Medical Director. To contact the EMS Manager 24/7, call 419-226-5178 or email
