Ambulance and Emergency Services


Blue Mountain Hospital District Emergency Medical Services provide Advanced Life Support (ALS) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Our ambulance service area (ASA) encompasses the entirety of Grant County (over 5000 square miles) and mutual aid agreements are maintained with our surrounding counties.

Our qualified EMS personnel are highly trained to state and national standards and undergo many hours of continuing education to maintain their knowledge and skills at current standards.  Fully staffed life support units are based at Blue Mountain Hospital in John Day, supporting volunteer life support units in Prairie City, Long Creek, Seneca, Monument, and Dayville.  Our units carry the most current equipment and medications to provide the very best medical care and our skilled emergency medical technicians are prepared to deal with any emergency that may occur.

Our goal is to provide quality, caring, and compassionate care to each and every one of our patients.

Air Medical Insurance:
Air Link and Life Flight both provide Grant County with air medical transport to higher levels of care in larger cities such as Bend, Portland and Boise. We strongly recommend having the affordable air life insurance from both companies to ensure that you have complete coverage if you ever need to utilize the air medical service.  If you have questions regarding air medical insurance, click the link for Air Link or Life Flight to learn more, or call our EMS office at 541-575-4159.
