Offered by either a private or public agency, ambulance services play a pivotal role in meeting emergency healthcare needs. These services are characterized by its distinctive capacity to coordinate, manage and provide critical care under extreme circumstances. Modern day ambulance services fulfill a broad range of healthcare needs including non-emergency and emergency patient transport, urgent primary care and shifting to alternative healthcare sites in case of referrals.
