Mich. city makes MedStar agreement official
The city decided to move toward privatizing ambulance transport service
HARPER WOODS, Mich. — The city has been working with Med-Star for ambulance service for some time, but the relationship is now in writing with a contract approved at the Jan. 23 City Council meeting.
The city decided to move toward privatizing ambulance transport service, due to financial issues. The city heard proposals from representatives of four of five ambulance companies that submitted proposals in July 2011. In 2011, MedStar agreed to respond to calls in the city - a move that was aimed to help lower the need to rely so heavily on mutual aid from other communities. Later, they started providing all transport service in the city.
