Our national reach and extensive experience allows us to deliver a wide range of services to communities nationwide, from managing entire emergency medical systems to private-public partnerships that best serve an area's needs.

 

AMR is a leader in the emergency medical services sector which is known for implementing and providing the industry's best practices. We are committed to the Triple Aim:

 
  • Improving the patient experience of care
  • Improving the health of populations
  • Reducing the per capita cost of health care


AMR serves communities all across the country. Our teams have trained more than 183,000 people nationally in compression-only CPR, which means that many more people have a better chance of surviving sudden cardiac arrest.

History of AMR - Creating the nation's leading ambulance service

 
  • AMR was founded in 1992 when several regional ambulance providers consolidated into a single company.
  • AMR was created in response to changes in health care reimbursement, the demands of new technology and the growth of managed care plans, which created a need to build a larger provider network.
  • AMR expanded in 1997 when it merged with Med Trans, making it the largest ambulance service provider in the U.S.
  • In 2005, AMR and Onex Partners L.P. purchased AMR and its sister company, EmCare, from Laidlaw International.
  • AMR expanded its lines of service with a new international EMS division in 2005 with the formation of Global Medical Response (GMR).
  • AMR acquired Air Ambulance Specialists (AASI) in 2006. AASI changed its name to AMR Air Ambulance (AMR Air). AMR Air arranges domestic and international fixed-wing air ambulance service. With this acquisition, AMR now offers a full spectrum of ground and air-based emergency medical transportation options.
