Adventist Health Tillamook announces that Andrew Browning has been named the 2024 EMS Provider of the Year. Andrew, who began his journey with Adventist Health in September 2022 as an EMT-Intermediate, has shown exceptional dedication, compassion, and commitment to patient care, recently completing his paramedic certification in February 2024. Andrew’s peers have praised his relentless drive and readiness to go the extra mile. “From the time Andrew was hired into the department, he has distinguished himself as always ready to support the team and provide excellent patient care. He has grown from an EMT–Intermediate to a paramedic who continues to cover shifts and assist coworkers whenever needed,” one colleague shared.
