Chairmen's Message —
Greetings on behalf of West York Ambulance, Inc. It is our privilege to serve as the primary emergency medical services provider in both West York Borough and West Manchester Township. West York Ambulance provides both Basic and Advanced Life Support on a 24- hour basis with a staff who is committed to providing high quality emergency medical service whenever and wherever you need it.
In last year's membership newsletter, I talked about the need for emergency medical service providers to combine resources to achieve cost savings as reimbursements shrink and costs rise. That need to regionalize still exists and conversations continue among several providers, including West York Ambulance, Inc., to move forward in developing a new delivery model for emergency medical services in York County.
The talks have been fruitful, but progress has been slow. There are many hoops to jump through, from the state level to the local municipality level. In addition, there is a rich history with most ambulance services in York County that must be accounted for in any regionalization plan. As these conversations continue, and new models are developed, we will keep you informed of our progress. Rest assured that our guiding principal as we engage in these conversations is you, the patient.
We thank you for your support of West York Ambulance. We look forward to providing high-quality emergency medical services to the citizens of West York Borough and West Manchester Township well into the future.
