Gillespie Joins House Health Committee
HARRISBURG – State Rep. Keith Gillespie (R-Hellam) has been appointed to serve on the House Health Committee, his fifth committee assignment. Gillespie is also a member of the Game and Fisheries, Judiciary, Professional Licensure, and Tourism and Recreational Development committees.
“My 32 years in the health care field will be a benefit to the duties I am taking on in joining this committee,” Gillespie said. “I look forward to working with Chairman Matt Baker
(R-Bradford/Tioga) and the other committee members in moving vital health care legislation to the House floor.”
In 1972, Gillespie became one of the first certified paramedics in Pennsylvania through a national pilot program. He began his service to the people of York County at Memorial Hospital as a paramedic with Medic 102, the first full-service medic unit in York County.
In 1978, Gillespie started Lancaster Medical Transport Inc., which later became part of York County-based White Rose Ambulance. Prior to joining the Legislature, Gillespie was also a certified Emergency Medical Technician who provided first response medical care to thousands of individuals.
