Waterbury Hospital is a proud partner to the many EMS providers and organizations in our area.

At Waterbury Hospital, we understand and appreciate the excellent pre-hospital care our patients receive by dedicated EMRs, EMTs and Paramedics. Quite simply, we cannot do what we do in the ED without EMS caring for our patients in the field!

Our mission is to always work collaboratively with all first responders and provide resources and education.
