Jen Pasquale and Joseph Tyree

HARTFORD –  As of May 15, 2015, Aetna’s Joseph Tyree has been cleared by Hartford Hospital medical control for independent dispatch as a paramedic to the towns that Aetna serves.

Joe started at Aetna as an EMT-Basic in October of 2009 and graduated from the Hartford Hospital-Goodwin College Paramedic Program. His preceptor was Paramedic Jennifer Pasquale. 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, Joe’s final approval came from Hartford Hospital after shadowing him and his preceptor in the field as they responded to emergency calls.

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