Paving the way for Health, Hope, and Healing

Community Paramedicine Program


Atrium Health Union’s Community Paramedicine (CP) Program offers in-home care to patients after leaving the hospital. Highly skilled paramedics provide treatment in your home and can connect with doctors and practitioners online for personalized, expert care when and where you need it.

What can I expect during a home visit?

A paramedic will arrive at your home and perform an assessment – taking you vital signs, reviewing your prescribed medications, and checking your home environment and medical equipment. They’ll work with you’re and your doctor to set the best schedule for future visits and provide direction for the care and treatment you need. If needed, our paramedics can connect directly with your doctor online or via phone. With your doctor’s guidance and the paramedic’s specialized equipment, recurring and complex diseases can be treated at home.
