Advanced Patient Transportation becomes St. Vincent's Ambulance Service | Health
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Advanced Patient Transportation (APT) will now be known as St. Vincent’s Ambulance Service.
The driving factor behind this decision is the fact that we, St. Vincent’s HealthCare, have been rapidly expanding our compliment of services and locations. Our ability to position ourselves as an integrated network is important. With the new naming of St. Vincent’s Southside and the future opening of St. Vincent’s Clay County, it was clear the name of our ambulance service should align with our system.
St. Vincent's Ambulance Service uses a fleet of 13 Advanced Life Support ambulances, 4 Basic Life Support ambulances, 12 wheelchair/stretcher vans and 2 rapid response vehicles to provide emergency and non-emergency transportation to members of our community.
All of the vehicles are staffed with state-certified Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians and all units carry equipment to provide intensive care including fully automated ventilators, advanced cardiac life support, IV pumps, vital sign dynamaps, cardiac monitors/defibrillators and pulse oximeters.
The name change takes effect immediately.
