AeroCare to Offer Ground Ambulance Service in the Permian Basin Starting This Month


Trusted Provider Expanding Services to Address Needs, Population Growth.
(Odessa, Texas) — Global Medical Response (GMR), the nation’s leading provider of medical transportation services, has expanded its footprint in West Texas. On October 12, 2020, GMR – the owner of longtime air ambulance provider AeroCare – began offering AeroCare ground ambulance service in the Permian Basin.

GMR partnered with Medical Center Hospital to start the new AeroCare service line. Initially, the company will staff four ground ambulances to transport bed-confined patients and others with special medical needs between their homes and healthcare, rehabilitation, and skilled nursing facilities.

“AeroCare has been a trusted healthcare provider in West Texas for more than 30 years. We’re excited to evolve with Odessa and Midland, two of the nation’s fastest-growing cities, to increase the availability of non-emergency ambulance service,” said Sonny Geary, GMR Vice President of Operations for Texas and Oklahoma. “The new AeroCare ground ambulance service will play a vital role in improving the most vulnerable patients’ access to medical care and in easing the patient flow issues commonly found in booming communities.”

In addition to its existing air medical bases in Odessa, Seminole, Lubbock, Fort Stockton, and New Mexico, AeroCare will open a new ambulance station in the City of Odessa. The company is recruiting licensed emergency medical technicians (EMTs), advanced EMTs, and paramedics to join its team.
