IN AN EMERGENCY, CALL 911

Andrew Holzhauer (R) is congratulated by Hartford Hospital’s Mike Zacchera

HARTFORD – As of February 7, 2013, Aetna’s Andrew Holzhauer has been cleared by Hartford Hospital medical control for independent dispatch as a paramedic to the towns that Aetna serves.

His preceptor was Matthew Campbell. The full precepting phase can take ten to 12 weeks or more as the paramedic is prepped for the realities of the field. As with all precepting phases at Aetna, Andrew’s final approval came from Hartford Hospital after shadowing him and his preceptor in the field as they responded to emergency calls.

After volunteering with Newington Volunteer Ambulance, Andrew obtained  his paramedic certificate from Capital Community College. Andrew says, “I thoroughly enjoy being a paramedic and look forward to working with the other medics and EMTs at Aetna Ambulance. I have only heard great things about Aetna and am excited to be working here.”

On behalf of the Aetna Family, we would like to wish Andrew the best of luck and say we are very proud to have such skilled professionals on staff.
