Welcome to Prosser Memorial Health. My name is Tyler Platt and I am the Director of Emergency Medical Services (EMS).  I have been a member of the EMS team for 4 years.  On this web page you will find information regarding the ambulance services provided by the Emergency Medical Services team.  Prosser is the center of Wine Country for Eastern Washington.  With that, our population grows exponentially during the Spring and Summer months.  We respond each year to more than 2000 calls for service including, motor vehicle accidents, medical emergencies, swift water and back-country emergencies.  Providing Western Benton County and the Lower Yakima Valley with primary 911 treatment and transportation to local area hospitals.  Secondarily, we also respond to areas of Klickitat County and provide mutual aid to our neighboring communities such as Benton City and Paterson.  We are staffed 24/7/365 with a minimum of 1 paramedic and 1 EMT per ambulance with the capabilities of providing Advanced Life Saving procedures to all of our patient's as needed.  Our team members care for each of our patients as if they were part of our own family, with a commitment to providing excellence in everything we do. 

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any concerns or questions regarding the care you have received from PMH EMS. 

Sincerely, Tyler Platt

What areas does PMH’s Emergency Medical Services serve?

Our EMS teams service not only Prosser, but surrounding communities and counties as well. 

How do I know if I’m too sick or injured to drive myself to the hospital?

When every second counts, don’t hesitate: Call 911. The dispatcher will ask you some questions about what happened and will help you decide whether you need emergency medical services or if you can go to the hospital on your own.

If I call an ambulance, will they take me to the hospital?

Not every medical emergency requires a trip to the hospital. You may not require further treatment after our EMTs and paramedics assess your condition. If you are awake and alert, you will be able to choose whether or not you want to be taken to the hospital.

This is how we care.

Around here, caring means more than exceptional medical care at world-class facilities. Care goes beyond the doctor’s office, the hospital, or the HIPAA agreement. To us, care is personal—from the gut, and from the heart. It’s about coming together to mend spirits with personal connections every day.
