Rick Hyatt is originally from the small town of Aurora, Texas, where he developed his personable and kind demeanor. He joined the EMS profession in 1991.
Rick’s current role at MedStar is as our medical records coordinator. In this position, Rick helps ensure that patient care reports are correctly completed, and assists MedStar field employees in learning the best way to provide a complete medical record. What he likes most about his role is the diversity. He gets to do what he loves most; EMS, education, and problem-solving for MedStar’s team members. Prior to joining the medical records team, Rick gained experience as a field paramedic and field-training officer, and has also previously worked as a schoolteacher.
Rick was selected for the Star of Life honor because of his incredible work ethic, dependability, commitment to excellence, and customer service.
He is very excited about his trip to Washington, D.C. for two reasons, to meet other Stars from across the country, and because this will be his first ever trip to Washington.
MedStar is proud to recognize Rick Hyatt as an American Ambulance Association 2016 Star of Life.
