HARTFORD– On January 17, 2013, five Paramedics were added to the Aetna team. As part of our continued growth Aetna and ASM seek out only the best candidates. We handpick employees who are focused on high-quality patient care, are team oriented and conduct themselves in a professional manner. During the orientation, employees learn about company philosophy and goals, quality assurance, and policies and procedures.
Andrew Holzhauer: FULL TIME, Paramedic. My name is Andrew Holzhauer. I started in EMS when I was 16. After two years of volunteering with Newington Volunteer Ambulance, I obtained a job with a commercial ambulance service and attended Capital Community College for their paramedic program. I was precepted and granted medical control through Saint Francis Hospital. I thoroughly enjoy being a paramedic and look forward to working with the other medics and EMTs at Aetna Ambulance. On my down time, I like to visit with family and friends, and take care of my dog, Auggie. He’s the best three legged black lab anyone could ask for. I am currently a student at Goodwin College studying for my RN. I am currently, and will be for the foreseeable future, taking pre-requisites for the RN program. I have only heard great things about Aetna and am excited to be working here.
Gregory Kendall: FULL TIME, Paramedic. My name is Greg Kendall and I’m 26 years old. I grew up in the Bridgeport area of Connecticut and moved to Montville about two years ago with my brother. During high school and through college I worked as an auto mechanic. I went to Housatonic Community College in Bridgeport, CTwhere I earned my Associate’s in Science. I started volunteering in EMS in the Bridgeport area about 4-5 years ago when I was finishing college and found that I really enjoyed it. After moving to Montville I began working as a full time EMT for a commercial service in the southeast part of Connecticut. I decided to make EMS a career and enrolled in Hartford Hospital/Goodwin College’s Paramedic Program. I recently graduated from the program and I am looking forward to work for Aetna Ambulance. I was recently asked why I started working in EMS in the first place and the answer is simple, it is the fact that everyday I work I can help people.
