Tri-County Health Care staff were awarded a certificate of recognition for hosting and completing their CALS training

Tri-County Health Care recently renewed its comprehensive advanced life support certification. Tri-County Health Care has been a CALS hospital for over two decades. 

CALS training honors rural healthcare facilities and the communities they serve by teaching advanced lifesaving techniques. This special training benefits every hospital department serving patients in critical situations.

“CALS focuses on a multidisciplinary team approach to the stabilization and management of critically ill or injured patients. There is pre-course work involved as well as a substantial classroom and skills component over a three-day period,” explained Tom Krueger, EMS education coordinator at Tri-County Health Care. Several staff members underwent the extensive training in October. Tri-County Health Care has hosted 16 different CALS courses so far.
