The CEO of Urgences-santé, Nicola D’Ulisse, will be addressing the
group. Following that, our people will be divided into two sections, one will
attend a demonstration of an automated defibrillator. Those who wish to
participate further will be trained to use the machine on their own. The
other folks will be shown the interior of an ambulance with all its intricacies.
Then the groups will change places.

Nicola D’Ulisse is Chairman of the board and Chief Executive Officer for Urgences-santé, one of the largest urban EMS providers in Canada which serves the cities of Montreal and Laval.

Appointed to lead Urgences-santé by the Quebec Minister of Health in May, 2009, he began his EMS career at the age of 18 as a volunteer first responder and ski patroller in the Laurentian Mountains. In 1986, he obtained his AEMT certification in Vermont and went on to work as a paramedic with Urgences-santé in 1989. After completing a Certificate in Health and Social Services Management at McGill University in 1995, he became a senior manager in the Canadian clinical research and pharmaceutical industry. He continued to contribute to EMS, founding a volunteer emergency medical responder service in his home community.

The longest serving CEO and Chair in Urgences-santé’s history, he is the recipient of the Governor General’s Exemplary Service Medal for 30 years of service and of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. He is very proud to represent the staff of nearly 1,400 dedicated professionals of Urgences-santé.
