AmeriPro Health LLC, a newly formed portfolio of healthcare companies committed to making patient logistics and last-mile healthcare delivery more efficient and valuable, announced the acquisition of Mississippi-based CareMed EMS, a provider of emergency and non-emergency ambulance services serving Mississippi and Tennessee. In doing so, AmeriPro Health dramatically increases its capabilities and presence in the Southeast in addition to Georgia and Florida, while providing existing CareMed EMS with access to additional infrastructure and capital resources to support ongoing growth and meet increasing demand for services.
AmeriPro Health is the new parent company of AmeriPro EMS and CareMed EMS and was created to support the expansion of innovative mobile healthcare solutions. The company plans to continue its expansion into other areas, supporting its mission of value-based, patient-centric services to provide advanced emergency, critical care and non-emergency medical transport and logistics to patients.
“We are excited to add a company to the AmeriPro Health portfolio that embodies the same values and commitment to safety and high-quality patient care,” said Suhas Upalapati, CEO of AmeriPro Health. “The acquisition of CareMed EMS kicks our long-term vision into high gear. It provides infrastructure and resources, brings additional leadership and talent, and most importantly helps us expand our geographic reach to provide innovative, industry-leading medical transportation. This is the first step in our aggressive strategy to disrupt a broken system and become the dominant player in the industry.”
“Entering the AmeriPro Health portfolio enables us to continue to grow and provide the highest quality services to our customers,” said David Grayson, CEO of CareMed EMS. “We are also able to leverage the resources of an epic, high-growth company that shares our values and drive to deliver the best in patient care.”
Building on a strong foundation of paramedic-payer-hospital-patient relationships, the company also announced today a significant expansion of service offerings with an emphasis on last-mile healthcare services that focus on the logistics of patient transfer with rapid medical technology and patient care. AmeriPro Health offers a customized suite of patient-centered, value-based services to meet and exceed the needs of communities, health systems, health plans and employers, including:
- Transfer of a patient from a community hospital to a comprehensive hospital for definitive treatment.
- Transferring a patient from an emergency hospital to a nursing home, hospice, or other rehabilitation facility.
- Bringing care teams to the patient’s home to continue the patient’s care after discharge from hospital to ensure adherence to care and recovery and reduce readmissions.
“The current state of the patient transport market is dismal, fragmented and far below what it should be in terms of healthcare as a whole,” said Suhas Upalapathy. “AmeriPro Health’s vision is to revolutionize and elevate the way patient transportation and mobile healthcare is offered, raising the standards and the bar for everyone. We’re creating a better way of doing things by putting the patient experience first.”
