Review for BURHOLME FIRST AID CORPS, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Burholme Emergency Medical Service is now the name Burholme is known as and was first in my awareness at age ten when they came to my house and carried out my cancer afflicted father at all hours of the day and night whenever he needed them. They only did first aid and ambulance care back then which was then like now far superior to others who moved the ill and injured. I have supported Burholme every way I can for the last sixty years, and I recommend the organization highly because they have always been and are still the epitome of High Tech Medicine.

Both The Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Pennsylvania Emergency Health Services Council declared their excellence in 2015 as the Best Emergency Medical Service in Pennsylvania and Presented them an official award attesting to that fact. I wrote a book about them titled Emergency Medical Kindness in the Cradle of Liberty - Big City Cracked Bell.

I personalized witnessed a Superior Technolgy Lifesaver when my neighbor was struck down with an additional heart attack and they transmitted a five lead EKG from Oxford Ave. To the Advanced Technology Cardiac Team at Jeanes Hospital so they could bypass the Emergency Room and bring Rich directly to the Operating Room where he was out of surgery within 45 minutes of his initial call. I still say WOW and how. Burholme and Jeanes Hospital prolonged his life with what they called a STEMI procedure that could not have been done anywhere near as timely for success at any other location in the state.
