Timothy Hoffman

Critical Care Paramedic
Timothy Hoffman

American Medical Response
Grand Rapids, Michigan

Tim Hoffman has been a dedicated AMR employee for more than 12 years. Tim grew up in Holland, Michigan and it was a natural step for him to become a paramedic. Tim’s father, John, is also a paramedic who works for AMR in Holland.

Tim started at AMR as a wheelchair van driver on August 16, 2005. He worked through school and became an EMT, then a Paramedic, and finally a Critical Care Paramedic. Tim had nearly perfect attendance throughout his employment. He frequently volunteered for charity runs and local community events.

Tim was easy going, well liked, warm hearted and always had a big smile.
Early in the morning of August 7, 2016, everything changed. Tim and his partner Kevin Jongekryg were on duty and at approximately 4:30 a.m., as they were driving through a rural coverage area, they were hit head on by a drunk driver. Tim was in critical condition with a devastating head injury.

After a arduous program of rehabilitation, on January 29, 2018, Tim returned to light duty work at AMR.  He has verbalized that he loves to “help people” and still wants to be able to help in any way he can. Tim will always have that “care giver” spirit that sets apart our AMR employees.
It is wonderful to see how excited he is to be back in his uniform and working in the building. He has the same easy going, big smile and warm heart.

Tim is so proud to work for AMR and we are so happy to see how far he has come.
