Ambulance Company Fears Job Cuts

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md. -  After losing its contract with the Peninsula Regional Medical Center, officials from Hart to Heart transportation say job cuts are a possibility at their Salisbury location.

The current contract between Hart to Heart and PRMC expires on June 30th.  PRMC officials said the decision to switch companies comes as critical care patients required a higher level of clinical skills and that was something Hart to Heart could not provide.  PRMC officials said this was not a cost-cutting measure.

WBOC spoke with officials with Hart to Heart over the phone Wednesday.  They told WBOC that PRMC was one of the largest contracts the Salisbury location had and they are still working to figure out what comes next.  However, Hart to Heart did confirm some job cuts are a possibility because of the change.

Lifestar Response of Maryland, Inc. begins transportation service with PRMC beginning on July 1st.
