Hennepin EMS

Hennepin EMS (HEMS) is one of the top emergency medical service providers in the country, serving Minneapolis and 13 western suburbs. In 2022, HEMS brought on Bellmont Partners to reach the communities they serve. The differentiator to communicate: When HEMS paramedics and EMTs arrive at the scene of an emergency, they bring the whole of the Hennepin Healthcare system with them – and from that, everyone stands to benefit. Since 2022, Bellmont Partners has helped HEMS share its story of medical expertise and compassionate care. With increased public communications including a monthly newsletter, a published annual booklet and strategic earned media coverage, HEMS has solidified its presence in the region as the premier option for EMS services.

“Working with Bellmont Partners has brought our brand to a new level – inside and out. By helping share the great work Hennepin Emergency Medical Services does day in and day out, Bellmont has deepened our connection with the communities we serve while reinvigorating a sense of pride within our team.”  

– Hennepin EMS Chief Marty Scheerer
