Ask the average person on the street what medical care transportation is and chances are they’ll have one response: “an ambulance.” But today, quality medical transportation is so much more than just an “ambulance ride.”
At Medstar, we provide a comprehensive range of transportation options designed to meet a variety of medical emergency and non-emergency healthcare transportation needs. Our goal is to provide optimal, compassionate care to fit the patient’s specific requirements – whether it’s an emergency trip to the hospital or a scheduled appointment for routine care.
Our three levels of transportation services include:
Advanced Life Support (ALS)
Responding to 911 calls and other emergency situations, our ALS transportation service provide immediate, skilled medical care from our highly-trained and experienced paramedics utilizing our top-of-the-line Zoll X series monitors and HT-70 ventilators to help ensure the best outcomes for patients facing life-threatening injuries or illnesses.
Basic Life Support (BLS)
Our BLS transportation is well-suited for less critical medical situations in which the patient still needs the services of an ambulance and emergency care providers. Our BLS ambulances are equipped state-of-the-art equipment including an automatic external defibrillator (AED) for heart attacks, blood pressure monitoring equipment, pulse oximetry and oxygen delivery devices to handle the comfort and medical care needs of every patient.
Wheelchair Van and Specialty Bus Service
Our wheelchair van service handles the needs of non-emergency patients going to and from appointments, family gatherings, and group events. Our specialty transport bus is capable of transporting multiple patients to different activities and is staffed by our friendly wheelchair van operators.
From 911 emergencies to routine medical appointment transportation, Medstar offers a full range of transportation services with top level care providers and advanced medical technology.
