EMS Award for Excellence

John P. Moore was an invaluable member of the OhioHealth Grant Medical Center family. For 25 years, John served as a part-time paramedic instructor at Grant, and was one of three paramedic instructors for the Columbus Division of Fire. John was instrumental in the creation of GrantLifeFlight’s first remote helicopter base in Wellston, Ohio — the first of its kind in the country.This base helped to increase the rapid response of helicopter crews in southern Ohio and helped to significantly improve patient survival rates in rural areas.

John dedicated his professional life to the continued success of the Grant Trauma program and Grant’s LifeLink program. His contributions to the improvement of care for pre-hospital patients through his efforts at the Columbus Division of Fire, Grant LifeFlight, Grant LifeLink and Grant’s Paramedic School are invaluable.
