As of 07/01/2018 Dr. Gregory Zolkowski, D.O. (Dr. Z) will serve as the Medical
Director of Ripley County Ambulance District. Dr. Z is a fulltime emergency
physician at S.E. Health of Ripley County, serving several years in that
capacity. Dr. Z and his family make their home in Doniphan, Mo. Previously
he worked in the Bolivar, Mo area. He received his medical degree from
Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine and has been practicing for over 30
years. We look forward to direction from Dr. Z and welcome him.
The District recently hired a new Paramedic, Eric Limbaugh who lives locally
and comes to RCAD with over 20 years experience in EMS. Eric is a well known
and highly respected Paramedic throughout all of Southeast Missouri having
worked for several services in the area, including Shannon County, Poplar
Bluff Ambulances Services, West Carter County Ambulance and others. We look
forward to working with Eric and know he will be a valuable member of our
Timber Berry, EMT-P recently became the newest paramedic working for RCAD. She
has worked fulltime for the District since 2015, as an EMT. During the past
twelve months she attended the Paramedic Program at Three Rivers College
which consisted of hundreds of hours of classroom lecture and laboratory
experience. Additionally Timber had to perform clinical experience at area
hospitals and ambulance services. Working fulltime and going to school
fulltime, while raising her family has been very taxing. Hopefully she finds
lots of family time, while the residents of Ripley County also benefit from
Timber's increased knowledge and abilities for years to come!
