REMSA Health and Care Flight, a service of REMSA Health, has promoted Vanessa Coyle to director of Care Flight operations.
In her new role, Coyle will report to Barry Duplantis, interim CEO, and will oversee Care Flight critical care operations. Coyle made significant contributions to the Care Flight division after being promoted to the role of operations manager in May.
Coyle has been with the organization for nearly 20 years, having joined REMSA Health as an AEMT in 2003 and has grown her career from a ground paramedic into critical care operations leadership. She brings close to two decades of EMS experience to the role, in which she provides day-to-day oversight and resource management for a critical care air- and ground-transport program.
In addition to continuing her work as a clinician, Coyle collaborates with requesting agencies and first-response partners.
She is licensed as a paramedic in Nevada and California and holds a variety of advanced out-of-hospital healthcare certifications. In 2019, Coyle was selected as a Nevada Star of Life honoree.
