Pa. township looks to privatize ambulance service

If approved it will replace Manoa Fire Co. and Llanerch Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Co., which have provided services for more than a half-century

Delaware County Daily Times 

HAVERFORD, Pa. — Commissioners recently voted to approve the University of Pennsylvania Health System as the township’s new emergency medical services provider.

Penn was selected from a pool of bidders that included Crozer-Keystone Health System and the Volunteer Medical Service Corps of Lower Merion and Narberth.

Gentile was authorized to revise a current agreement with Penn, which commissioners will vote on in July, with implementation expected in September or October, Gentile said.
