(L to R): Ted Dombroskas reaches for the coveted medical control letter held by Preston Ryzak

HARTFORD – As of January 17, 2014 Aetna’s Ted Dombroskas has been cleared by Hartford Hospital medical control for independent dispatch as a paramedic to the towns that Aetna serves.

Ted’s preceptor was Preston Ryzak. 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, Ted’s final approval came from Hartford Hospital after shadowing Ted and his preceptor in the field as they responded to emergency calls.

Ted graduated from the Yale New Haven Sponsor Hospital Paramedic Program. 

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