2019 Nevada Star of Life
Matthew McClean joined the mobile healthcare profession in 2014. He earned his EMT credentials in Los Angeles, where he served for 2-1/2 years before moving to the Las Vegas area. He worked as an EMT at AMR while attending Paramedic school. He finished his paramedic internship last October and started practicing as a Paramedic at the end of October 2018. Matthew now lends his talents to Community Ambulance in Clark County. Matthew is excited to further his career in mobile healthcare, and to continue to help his community for many years to come.
Just two weeks after finishing his Paramedic internship, Matthew responded to a call that would forever impact his approach to patient care. Matthew’s coworker had been shot in the head due to an accidental firearm discharge. Matthew and his partner, Rachelle Angel, transported this colleague and friend to UMC hospital where he received further care for his injury. The experience of providing mobile healthcare to someone personally knew inspired in Matthew an even deeper commitment to compassionate, skilled paramedicine.
Matthew likes to spend his days off with his girlfriend, Autumn, traveling to new places and visiting his family back in California. He loves the outdoors and staying active.
Community Ambulance is proud to recognize Matthew McClean as a 2019 Nevada Star of Life.
