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.
