Baptist Memorial partners with Priority Ambulance to improve transport services

Memphis, Tenn.-based Baptist Memorial Health Care is partnering with Knoxville, Tenn.-based Priority Ambulance to provide quicker, more efficient emergency transportation services between the health system's various locations, according to EMS World.

Under the partnership, the organizations will collaborate on a critical care pediatric ambulance program to transport young patients to their various physicians' and specialists' offices. Priority Ambulance will also oversee, manage and staff the health system's ambulances and streamline the dispatch process by establishing a centralized dispatch center. 

The financial terms of the transaction, if any, were not disclosed.

"We are excited about the growth in our pediatric services and the ability to add specialized medical transportation through a partnership with Priority Ambulance," said Jason Little, president and CEO of Baptist Memorial Health Care. "We are passionate about healing, teaching and preaching and we are confident Priority Ambulance shares similar values. This alliance will allow us to more efficiently care for patients, which will elevate the quality of care in our community."
