May 20, 2024

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (May 20, 2024)— Priority OnDemand, a national leader in emergency medical services (EMS), will join the more than 23,000 licensed EMS agencies nationwide in celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of National EMS Week, May 19 – 25, 2024. 

The National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians, in partnership with the American College of Emergency Physicians, continues to recognize and honor the contributions and sacrifices of EMS professionals. This year’s theme reflects the industry’s history and future, “Honoring Our Past, Forging Our Future.”  This year, Priority OnDemand celebrates its milestone, commemorating a decade of delivering essential EMS services across the country.

As a leader and advocate for accessible healthcare, Priority OnDemand recognizes the unique challenges and remarkable achievements the EMS industry has accomplished over the decades and how the ever-changing healthcare system will affect its future.  

Founded as Priority Ambulance in 2013, the company has evolved from an ambulance provider to a healthcare company recognized by large insurance companies, hospitals, and municipal and county governments for its depth of services provided.  In support of its onsite care of patients, OnDemand Visit is the company’s telehealth division, featuring an experienced, U.S.-based provider panel available 24/7 and accessed with the click of a button on first responders’ ePCR electronic tablets.  StatCall is Priority’s proprietary technology that streamlines facility coordination. OnDemand Specialty Vehicles is the company’s manufacturing division, ensuring operations are fully equipped. Service divisions collectively strive to deliver unparalleled healthcare services, reinforcing the company’s motto of providing the highest quality “healthcare anywhere®.” 

“Over the past few decades, our communities and patients’ needs have evolved significantly. EMS Week serves as a time to reflect on these changes and how we, as an industry, have adapted to better serve our patients. At the heart of this care are our people. EMS Week is a dedicated time to honor these professionals who work tirelessly, demonstrating a level of commitment that ensures each patient receives the right care,” expressed Bryan Gibson, CEO, and founder of Priority OnDemand. 

As National EMS Week draws closer, Priority OnDemand extends its gratitude to all the EMS professionals across the nation, both past and present, who have supported those in need. The company is committed to continuing its advocacy and growth as a healthcare provider of accessible, high-quality healthcare. Priority looks forward to collaborating with its partners across the industry to ensure a bright and innovative future for EMS for all.
