Parkview Emergency Medical Services has been providing high quality Emergency Medical Services to the community since 1949. Parkview EMS is a non-profit organization subsidized through third party billing to private insurance and Medicare. Because of recent cutbacks in federal funding,Parkview subsidizes this decrease in operating income from these insurance companies through fund drives and local events to maintain the necessary funds to continue strong EMS operations.
