36th Annual Pro-Am Golf Classic

Join us on Thursday, September 13 at the DuPont Country Club, Championship Course in Wilmington, Del. for Riddle Hospital’s 36th Annual Pro-Am Golf Classic benefiting Riddle Hospital Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

More than 30 years ago, Riddle Hospital launched its EMS unit with a five-member crew answering 600 calls annually. Today, the Riddle EMS team of 62 professionals, all with specialized training, certification and degrees in allied health, responds to more than 9,800 emergency calls each year.

In addition to providing 24-hour emergency coverage, the Riddle EMS team is very active in the local community providing CPR/AED training to schools, fire companies, businesses, and community organizations; instructional seminars to skilled nursing facilities; education sessions for school children; and they serve as standby EMS coverage of sporting events and other large gatherings.
