The Medical Center at Bowling Green has agreed to begin calling the Edmonson County Ambulance Service for return ambulance transports when Edmonson County residents are discharged from their facility, should the patient need to be transported by ambulance.
This agreement was reached through the efforts of the EMS Directors of surrounding counties and the Medical Center administration. EMS Director Keith Sanders indicated that this would benefit Edmonson County residents. "The more revenue that can be generated by transports, the less revenue that has to be generated by taxes," Sanders said.
The agreement began on December 1. Sanders encouraged all county residents to contact the ambulance service at 270-597-3721 if you see an ambulance dropping off or picking up a patient in your community and it is not an Edmonson County ambulance. He also asked to include the name of the ambulance service as well as the date, time and location.
