A SUMMARY OF THE FEDERAL PROJECT FOR EMERGENCY MEDICAL CARE IN AN EIGHT COUNTY AREA OF NORTHEAST FLORIDA

This contract proposes to take the most advanced emergency medical care delivery system in the nation and expand its concepts to include a seven county rural area around Jacksonville's major urban and medical center in order to provide advanced emergency medical care to the residents of the rural area and transients passing through this area comparable to that being given the citizens of the urban area, while simultaneously providing first class emergency care to the large indigent core city ghetto population of 125,000. The Jacksonville EMC system has been viewed by over 80 groups from other cities and states in the past 18 months. Its use as a working model by other government entities affords positive proof of the value of a successful demonstration model's value in assisting other communities to develop similar systems. The establishment of a broad regional emergency services model will be a major step in demonstrating how a major city and medical complex can combine services with the surrounding rural areas to most economically upgrade their services.
