Stretcher Service

Our non-emergency stretcher service can save families and facilities hundreds of dollars compared to the cost of an ambulance ride. As insurance rarely pays, this is a SIGNIFICANT savings for those who need such services. State EMS names this “Invalid Stretcher” transport, but there are many other terms meaning the same thing – Stretcher, Stretcher Van, Bed-bound, Cot, Bedridden, and Gurney.

Services Include:

  • Local and Long Distance Transports
  • House-to-Appointment
  • Facility-to-Facility Transfers
  • Discharges and Admits
  • Bariatric Stretcher (call for details and quote)
