Randolph, Clay and Quitman Counties Latest to Step Up Rural EMS/911
Services with Unique Public-Private Partnership with AmeriPro Health
ATLANTA, Sept. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- AmeriPro Health LLC, a portfolio of healthcare companies committed to making patient logistics and last-mile healthcare delivery more efficient and valuable, today announced that three more rural Georgia counties have voted to transfer their EMS/911 services to AmeriPro EMS, an innovative operator of high-quality ambulance, mobile integrated health, and patient logistics services in the Southeastern United States. Implementation will take place over the next several months once the contracts are finalized.
"Rural America is struggling across the nation to meet the needs of their citizens with Emergency Services and provide access to affordable and sustainable health care," said Larry Richardson, Chief Business Officer at AmeriPro Health. "We are the answer to those struggles."
AmeriPro Health brings many benefits to rural communities, including state of the art ambulance services, increased clinical and diagnostic capabilities, last-mile health care and a unique public-private partnership with local healthcare providers and hospital facilities in the region.
"Clay County is a small rural community, so when they closed our nearest community hospital back in 2020, we became very dependent upon EMS services for our emergency healthcare needs," said James Davenport, Chairman of Clay County Georgia. "Unfortunately, under the current system, we were not receiving quality, reliable care. By joining forces with our surrounding communities and contracting with AmeriPro, we will be able to provide our community state-of-the-art, reliable EMS and emergency healthcare services."
"We look forward to a long-lasting, symbiotic relationship with AmeriPro Health," said Carvel Lewis, Chairman of Quitman County, Georgia. "Despite the economic woes of our area in Southwest Georgia, AmeriPro will enable us to improve the quality of life for our residents and strengthen our mission to improve economic development in our county and region."
In general, rural American has fewer opportunities, fewer resources, and less access to good health care, so by utilizing the AmeriPro Health broad service offerings, communities can gain better access to sustainable health care. AmeriPro strategically aligns with government counterparts to build better access to health care beyond the existing level of transportation services.
"Rural America should not have to compromise on health care," adds Richardson "Through these strategic public-private partnerships and collaboration with the local health care facilities, we can design a long-term sustainable solution to the challenges of rural America and provide an elevated level of Emergency Medical Services and better access to health care to counties like Randolph, Clay and Quitman County. We look forward to working with other rural communities in our country to fill the void and lack of quality healthcare. It is opportunities like these that allow us to bring additional service offerings like acute care to communities that have not had access to these services in the past and help provide a sustainable healthcare ecosystem."
