Martinez, GA — Gold Cross EMS in Martinez has received a 3 year re-accreditation from the
Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services for its continued compliance with national
standards of excellence. Gold Cross EMS is one of only 180 ambulance services in the country to
successfully complete the voluntary review process which included completion of a comprehensive
application and on-site review by national experts in emergency medical services (EMS). With this
achievement, Gold Cross EMS remains one of only 8 ambulance services out of 270 in Georgia to be
accredited in the state and one of only two in South Carolina.
The commission is a non-profit organization which was established to encourage and promote quality
patient care in America’s medical transportation system. The primary focus of the Commission’s
standards is high-quality patient care. This is accomplished by establishing national standards which not
only address the delivery of patient care, but also the ambulance service’s total operation and its
relationships with other agencies, the general public, and the medical community. The commission’s
standards often exceed state or local licensing requirements.
Vince Brogdon, CEO, said accreditation “represents our firm commitment to our patients and
community. We continuously strive to do our best and we viewed accreditation as another step toward
“Our staff has been key to our successful completion of the process. I think it gives the feeling of
prestige and pride to work in an accredited ambulance service,” said Steven Vincent, Chief Operating
Officer. “Everyone here played a valuable role in our ability to meet the Commission’s high standards.
We have achieved re-accreditation but I believe it can only be a stimulus for continued improvement.”
