Mary Greeley Medical Center (MICS)
In 2019 the oldest paramedic service in Iowa, Mary Greeley Mobile Intensive Care Services (MICS), celebrates its fortieth birthday. Mary Greeley’s commitment to safety, education, and patient-centered care in the past year have made them deserving of this award and I would like to take this opportunity to nominate them for IEMSA’s EMS Career Service of the Year.

Mary Greeley takes great pride in being the oldest paramedic-level ambulance service in the state and in being the first service in Iowa to have offline protocols. Blending that history with progressive ideas, Mary Greeley paramedics have refocused on safety and quality which lead to the design of a safer, more efficient ambulance. Mary Greeley paramedics have also expanded their ability to provide service to their community by staffing additional ambulances in areas of need and training many members of the department to the level of critical care paramedic.

In addition to providing 9-1-1 coverage and critical care transfer services, MICS is the only ambulance service in Iowa to host its own training center. From their beginnings as host of the first paramedic class in Iowa, MICS has worked in 2019 to expand its ability to provide EMS education to their community by the creation of a new education coordinator position. With the improved ability to focus on education and training, they are now teaching two EMT courses and have begun to offer several NAEMT courses as they look to continue to be a leader in EMS.

In appreciation of the fortieth year of high-quality emergency medical care that MICS has been able to provide and of their continued leadership in EMS, I would like to thank Mary Greeley’s MICS for their many, many years of quality service.
