NEW YORK, Oct. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Ambulnz, Inc., d/b/a DocGo, a leading provider of last-mile mobile medical services and integrated medical mobility solutions that has entered into an agreement to merge with Motion Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: MOTN), announced it has extended its transportation services to service veterans in Upstate New York. The contract with VA hospitals and clinics, which went into effect on October 1, 2021, enables DocGo to elevate the level of transportation services that veterans receive for non-emergency appointments to hospitals, clinics and for other specialized care throughout the region.
DocGo started its operations in Upstate New York in October 2020, providing paramedic services in towns including Warwick and Minisink. The partnership with VA Hudson Valley Health Care System clinics further expands DocGo's mobile footprint in the region, helping to ensure that veterans no longer miss medical appointments due to transportation challenges, or have to wait an excessive amount of time for transportation to arrive.
"We're thrilled to partner with VA Hudson Valley hospitals and clinics and extend our popular transportation services to these deserving veterans," said Michael Witkowski, Chief of Operations at DocGo. "Historically, many veterans have experienced challenges with transportation to and from VA hospitals, clinics and appointments, with some waiting for hours for transportation to show up. Our near-term goal is to greatly improve response times and ensure exceptional care for veterans in Upstate New York and across the country."
Witkowski credits his team of professionals for their commitment to providing a positive health experience to VA hospitals and their patients. "We are committed to providing patients with on-time, quality care so they aren't waiting long to be transported or miss a medical appointment because they didn't get picked up on time. We plan to fix any existing service gaps and support these deserving men and women who have given so much for our country."
With the contract kicking off early October, veterans should see an immediate improvement in the quality of their transportation services. "We're excited to work with VA to improve the responsiveness of transportation services throughout the area and expanding our presence in the region with additional services down the road," added Witkowski.
