Wall, NJ – Last week, the formal graduation ceremony was held for the Ocean County College/MONOC Paramedic Program.  From this most recent class, a total of 28 students graduated from both the traditional and hybrid classes and will now move onto complete their final hands-on clinical rotations.  Once students complete this required training, they will sit for their State and National Paramedic exam.  When certified, Paramedics will go to work at one of the 21 Mobile Intensive Care Unit (MICU) Paramedic programs located throughout New Jersey.

Agnes Galiano, Paramedic Program Manager, said “Congratulations to the graduates! They are an outstanding group and more than prepared for their clinical and field internships!”

The Ocean County College/MONOC Paramedic Program is one of only four Paramedic training programs in New Jersey and out of those four, one of only two programs to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP). 

MONOC Mobile Health Services is a non-profit hospital cooperative consisting of 15 acute care hospitals located throughout New Jersey.  Formed in 1978 MONOC’s mission is to improve healthcare and reduce costs.  MONOC employs over 730 employees and operates a fleet of over 100 ambulances.  Together this shared services consortium acts as a healthcare cooperative for these acute care hospitals and over 2.8 million residents that they serve living in more than 1,800 square miles of the Garden State.

Among its numerous service lines, MONOC operates MICU Paramedic Services, Helicopter interfacility and 911 services, Mobile Critical Care Services and Basic Life Support interfacility and 911 services.  Additionally, MONOC operates the State’s largest EMS education department and a 24/7 state of the art 9-1-1 dispatch center which handled over 156,000 requests for service in 2013.
