Published by Matt Fishman on

Congress has approved the continued funding of the Emergency Medical Services for Children program. The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) for Children program “is designed to ensure that all children… receive appropriate care in a health emergency” by “developing [hospitals across the country’s] own capabilities… to improve the quality of care in state EMS and trauma systems.” Congress has authorized “$22,334,000” each year through 2024 towards “the expansion and improvement of emergency medical services for children who need treatment for trauma or critical care.” The bill passed unanimously.
