Integrated Medical Transport, a non-emergency medical transportation company based in Mechanicsburg, will offer its transportation services to the general public. The move is a response to concern surrounding the spread of the coronavirus.
The transportation company will expand its services to customers looking for an option that follows the same clinical cleaning guidelines as Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
Integrated Medical Transport employs 140 people and provides ambulance and paratransit services in 20 counties throughout the state. It generally transports patients to hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and hospice providers.
“While our country and our state continues to institute unprecedented measures to counter the spread of COVID-19, there are individuals who count on ride-hailing services and other public transportation options for essential travel,” said Matt Rohman, CEO of Integrated Medical Transport. “These individuals will be rightfully concerned about the risk of exposure to the virus and community spread. This is why we have decided to put our premium medical transport fleet to work as an alternative to ride-hailing services, ride-sharing services and taxis.”
The company’s vehicles are cleaned before and after a client enters the vehicle, using guidance set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for EMS agencies, the company said.
Integrated Medical Transport provides services in the following counties: Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lebanon, Lancaster, Perry, York, Lehigh, Northampton, Bucks, Chester, Montgomery, Northumberland, Snyder, Berks, Carbon, Juniata, Monroe and Schuylkill.
