ATLANTA — AmeriPro Health LLC, a newly formed portfolio of healthcare companies, announced Tuesday that it acquired Mississippi-based CareMed EMS, an emergency and non-emergency ambulance service provider serving Mississippi and Tennessee.

With the acquisition, AmeriPro Health increases its capabilities and Southeast presence in addition to Georgia and Florida.

AmeriPro Health is the new parent company of AmeriPro EMS and CareMed EMS. The company plans to continue expanding into other areas, it said in a news release.

AmeriPro EMS acquired Florida-based Ambulance Service, Inc., one of the oldest EMS providers in the Jacksonville area, in 2019.

“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 Uppalapati, 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 geographical 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.”

David Grayson, CEO of CareMed EMS, expressed enthusiasm for the deal that was announced in April.

“Coming under the portfolio of AmeriPro Health provides us with an opportunity to continue to grow and provide the highest quality services to our customers,” Grayson said. “We are also able to leverage the resources of an epic high-growth company that shares our values and quest to provide the very best in patient care.”
