When looking for ground medical transportation, there are a number of ways to go about finding a licensed ambulance. If it is an emergency, it is important to dial 911 first. If it is a non-emergency, or you are looking for more ambulance providers, start by asking your local hospital. Call a hospital that is located where you plan to leave from and ask if they can refer you a list of ambulance companies available.
Licensed ambulances can be found by the bulk by contacting your state as well. By contacting your state health department, you can request to have a list of all of the licenses that have been given out for the different levels of medical transportation. The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) provides the ability for members of the public to request these documents.
In some states, stretcher vans are legal and a useful means of transportation. A patient, if eligible and in the right condition, can be transported for the range of a hundred dollars instead of five or six hundred dollars by these means.
Some counties, as well, have licensed only a few companies to do medical transports. These companies, in turn, sometimes choose to only do ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) transports. All patients, regardless of their condition, pay the most expensive rates. Unfortunately, there are not many ways get around this. Either find a stretcher van service or if the patient is being sent to another county, you may be able to have an ambulance service from the receiving county do the transport.

I would like to thank everyone involved from turning a potentially difficult experience into an enjoyable one. My mother,Mary, and I enjoyed the flight, and the flight nurse, was terrific. He really allayed all our fears, and we felt perfect confidence in him.
The pilot and first officer were also wonderful and instilled great confidence in us. All in all, it was a marvelous trip and we can’t thank you enough!!!
This letter commends the efficiency and professionalism of your organization during the recent transport of our aunt, Lisa Cordero, from New York City to Cleveland. The flight crew was courteous and helpful. Your flight coordinators were exceptionally competent in arranging a quite difficult transfer.
Where we have had frustrations with lawyers, bankers, and doctors, we had only the most ‘can do’ attitude from all of your staff. We have recommended your service to a colleague and will continue to do so without hesitation.
