WATERBURY — Campion Ambulance Services became Trinity Health of New England Emergency Medical Services, completing its transition to Trinity Health of New England.

All services will remain in place and managed in collaboration with Community EMS, a national provider of emergency medical services.

According to Robert Dionne, chief operating officer of Trinity Health of New England EMS, “Our Primary Service Areas will continue to be Waterbury, Torrington, Prospect and Cheshire, with regional paramedic support to the greater Waterbury areas, Southbury, New Milford, Litchfield and Winsted.”

Campion Ambulance Services began at St. Mary’s Hospital, a Trinity Health of New England member hospital, in the late 1940s.

Edmund Campion purchased two ambulances to carry patients to the hospital.

Since that time, the family-run business has served the Greater Waterbury community and provided services to several other area towns as far north as Winsted and west to New Milford.

Mr. Dionne cites a smooth transition and is looking forward to maintaining the same quality service that Campion is known for.

In addition to the new name and uniforms, Trinity Health of New England EMS plans to invest in technology upgrades for its fleet of ambulances and crews.

More information about the hospital is available at stmh.org.
