Ambulnz - a mobile medical service and transportation company - is now expanding to new Counties in the Capital Region on a new partnership with Albany Med Health System.

"Our start right now is in the Saratoga and Glens Falls hospital" said Ambulnz DOCGO EMS Operations Chief Michael Witkowski "were hoping that as we continue to move forward that we will continue to expand in the rest of the Health System."

Representatives from Ambulnz would not specify on their financial partnership with Albany Med, but they say they provide regular ambulance 911 services, as well as basic and advanced life support services and critical care transportation and can meet the demand right now to the communities they are already in.

"Right now in the Capital Region we average anywhere between 6 and 8 trucks" said Witkowski.

Back in January, Empire Ambulance Service known for covering parts of the Capital REGION, specifically Cohoes, sold their license to Ambulnz.

Sine then, Cohoes Mayor Bill Keeler has been looking for a replacement, and Ambulnz has been servicing Cohoes since February.

Mayor Keeler could not say if the City will be partnering in a long term contract agreement with the company he says

"Ambulance Service bids are in and a deal is currently in the works, specifics can not be released now, but who will service Cohoes will be spoken about at the next City Council Meeting, Tuesday March 28th."

Although Ambulnz will be servicing in different areas of the region, this does not mean a partnership with City municipalities.

"We're able to satisfy the needs of the City at a very high level of care" said Saratoga Springs Public Safety Commissioner (D) Jim Montagnino "and very quick response times."

Ambulnz is reaching out to other municipalities for partnerships and looks to expand to more than 40 trucks servicing the communities just like in the lower Hudson valley region.

"We anticipate some additional demand coming here to us in a few weeks and hopefully as we do that we'll continue that expansion and build from there" said Witkowski.
