Cullman Regional Medical Center is offering a $2,000 sign-on bonus for paramedics for the Cullman EMS Ambulance Team.
"EMS Services across Alabama and throughout the United States were experiencing staffing shortages prior to COVID-19," Chief Operations Officer Nesha Donaldson said. "Those issues have increased due to COVID-19. Throughout the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused staffing challenges for Cullman EMS as many of our team members have contracted the virus, with some having to take extended absences."
In December, RPS, the other local ambulance transport provider, chose to leave the service area due to decreased demand for their primary service - non-emergent transfers - due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These combined challenges have created an opportunity for Cullman EMS to expand its workforce and its fleet.
In December of 2020, Cullman Regional purchased an additional ambulance to add to the Cullman EMS fleet in order to absorb any additional transfer volume following RPS's departure from the market.
