UMC Emergent Care
UMC EMS has been proudly serving the City of Lubbock and the surrounding areas since 1975. Throughout our history, our team has been committed to the health and safety of our community which is why we are also committed to the continuous quality improvement of our systems and processes.
Our EMS System is designed with a patients in mind. Research shows that an EMS System involves more than the common perception of emergency ambulance and first responder services. It incorporates community outreach, medical and system direction and oversight, in addition to clinically sophisticated, evidence-based response and emergency transportation.
From a young age, Kassi Shannon knew she wanted to be an EMT when she grew up, just like her dad. Her philosophy is similar to her fellow UMC EMS staff: she loves being able to make positive differences for others and bringing hope.
