S.C. county considers ambulance provider network
The agreement would establish an Emergency Medical Provider Network, and private ambulance companies that meet the criteria would be allowed to join
LAURENS COUNTY, S.C. — Laurens County residents will have access to more ambulances, if an agreement examined May 27 by a county council committee is made official.
The Health, Welfare and Public Safety committee examined the document, and agreed to seek an advisory opinion on it from the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control.
Once that opinion is received, and any recommendations considered, the agreement will be submitted for full Laurens County Council approval.
The agreement allows the Laurens County EMS to set up an Emergency Medical Provider Network, and private ambulance companies that meet the agreement’s criteria would be allowed to join the network.
