George Joseph Squier, Emergency Medical Services Manager at Harrison County Hospital, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Health Care Professionals for dedication, achievements, and leadership in emergency medicine.
Holding considerable expertise in health care and public safety, Mr. Squier began his career in emergency services in 1992. Inspired by his father, who was a police officer, he knew he wanted to be a public servant and decided to join a volunteer fire department at 16 years old. Starting out as a junior member of the fire department, he also spent several years as a police officer with the Indiana State Police before joining the New Albany Fire Department as a firefighter. During this time, he pursued an education at Indiana University Southeast, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in business management in 2004.
Retiring from work as a firefighter at the age of 30, Mr. Squier joined the Louisville Metropolitan Sewer District, where he worked in safety management, in addition to serving as a part-time paramedic for Harrison County Hospital. In 2018, he took an opportunity to apply for a management position at the hospital and was hired on as the emergency medical services manager. Continuing to further his studies throughout this time, Mr. Squier obtained a master’s degree in public administration from Indiana State University in 2019, something that he considers to be his most notable achievement. In his current role with Harrison County Hospital, he is responsible for overseeing a department of 63 people, managing all of the emergency medical services, budgets and expenditures, ensuring that operational needs are met, scheduling, disciplinary processes, special events, and liaising with the county government.
Alongside his primary responsibilities, Mr. Squier is an active member of his community as well. In addition to spending time as an Explorer Scout for two years with the local sheriff’s office, he has also involved himself with the Indiana District 9 Healthcare Coalition, Boy Scouts of America, and the local middle school, where he donated his time as a coach for baseball and softball for nine years. He maintains affiliation with such professional organizations as the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians and the International Association of Emergency Managers in order to keep up to date with developments in his field.
Attributing much success to his work ethic, his ongoing dedication to self-improvement, and continuing to learn both professionally and personally, Mr. Squier plans to continue to grow and excel in his career. His current goal is to involve himself in consulting and mentoring other professionals in the fields of emergency management and public safety. He would advise young and aspiring professionals to keep learning, never give up, and take opportunities when they come your way. Hoping to leave a legacy as someone who really cared for other people, Mr. Squier was notably honored as the Emergency Medical Technician of the Year by the state of Indiana in 2007.
