Sentara Ceases Operations of Subsidiary Ambulance Company

Sentara Healthcare recently announced it is ceasing operations of its subsidiary ambulance company, Medical Transport, LLC. The decision will affect approximately 100 employees.

In an announcement issued by Sentara, Senior Communications Advisor Dale Gauding stated, “Sentara leaders have made a difficult decision to cease operating our subsidiary ambulance company, Medical Transport, LLC. We will do all we can to help about 100 affected employees find employment with other ambulance companies or within Sentara. Ambulance transport has become increasingly complex, and we have concluded it is not a core competency for Sentara. We are currently reviewing proposals from potential partners to provide this important service, hire our willing employees, and maintain high standards for quality, safety, and customer service.”

Medical Transport, LLC is a commercial EMS agency and ambulance transport service headquartered in Virginia Beach. Established in 1982, Medical Transport is a multi-faceted organization with departments operating in support of emergency and non-emergency transport capabilities, including a Vehicle Maintenance Department, Operations Support Department, Quality Assurance Team, and Communication Center (24/7 computer-aided Dispatch Center).

Medical Transport currently serve Williamsburg, Newport News, Hampton, Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, and Portsmouth.
