The Ruby Valley Medical Center could not find an ambulance service within four counties to transport a patient in need of immediate care to Butte July 19.

A week after Herbert Smith’s heart attack, he was back in RVMC. He needed to go to St. James Hospital in Butte, where the pacemaker and stint in his heart were put in days earlier.

Willing to put in the work

According to an assessment from Safe Tech Solutions, a consulting firm that specializes in emergency medical services, the long-term sustainability of the Ennis Ambulance Service is questionable. Stakeholders of EAS met in the Madison Valley Bank conference room to discuss the assessment Aug. 12.
