IN AN EMERGENCY, CALL 911

Taylor Salva is congratulated by Hartford Hospital’s Greg Berryman

HARTFORD – As of November 1, 2012, Aetna’s Taylor Salva has been cleared by Hartford Hospital medical control for independent dispatch as a paramedic to the towns that Aetna serves.

His preceptor was Robert Velletri. 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, Taylor’s final approval came from Hartford Hospital after shadowing Taylor and his preceptor in the field as they responded to emergency calls.

Taylor is a new, full time Paramedic who graduated from Capital Community College one year ago. He has lived in the New London/Groton area all his life, until he, his wife, daughter and step daughter recently moved to Griswold. He enjoys boating, fishing and shooting. He has worked as an EMT basic, a firefighter, and ER technician for some time now and is excited to start his paramedic career.

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