Cetronia Ambulance taps NL grad as director

Cetronia Ambulance Corps in Allentown has promoted supervisor Edwin Boyle to director of operations.

A graduate of Northern Lehigh High School in 2005, Boyle lives in New Tripoli with his wife, Dr. Courtney Boyle, an OB/GYN for Lehigh Valley Physician Group, and his two children.

Boyle began his career with Cetronia Ambulance Corps in 2007 as a paratransit associate while attending George E. Moerkirk Emergency Medical Institute in Allentown to become an emergency medical technician. He earned his accreditation as a licensed EMT in 2008.

Later, he was awarded a scholarship through Cetronia Ambulance Corps to attend the Reading Hospital School of Health Sciences to become a paramedic, and graduated in 2011.

In 2016, he received his certification from the National Parks Police for Counter Narcotics and Terrorism Operational Medical Support, and in 2018, he was named supervisor for Cetronia Ambulance Corps.

Boyle went on to graduate with an associate’s degree in nursing from Excelsior College in New York in 2019, and is scheduled to take the Nursing Boards later this year.

As an active associate, Boyle has served as a tactical paramedic for the Eastern Pa. Region II Tactical Emergency Medical Services team since 2014. The team responds with the Lehigh County Municipal Emergency Response Team, Pa. State Police Special Emergency Response Team, the City of Easton Special Emergency Response Team, and the Berks County Emergency Response Team. He also served as a community paramedic for Lehigh Valley’s Congestive Heart Failure Pilot Program from 2017-18.

In his new role as director of operations, Boyle will manage the day-to-day operations of 125 Advanced Life Support, Basic Life Support, and Paratransit Fleet associates while also providing direction and mentoring the communications and field supervisors.

The director of operations is expected to facilitate a customer-first organizational culture that respects the organization, its people, and its customers. There will be an emphasis placed on continuing to strengthen and build solid community partnerships within the region we serve and beyond.
