San Antonio, Texas, July 18, 2016 - Allegiance Mobile Health, the largest private Texas-based provider of medical transportation and 911 emergency services, has acquired San Antonio’s well-respected Gemini Ambulance Service, Inc. San Antonio residents and customers of Gemini can expect to continue to receive compassionate care through high-quality, cost-effective, and reliable EMS services. This is the fourth acquisition Allegiance has completed in the past nine months.
The acquisition enables Allegiance to grow the population it services in Texas with the addition of operations in the San Antonio community. Continued growth paired with increasing scale allows Allegiance to provide the highest quality of care to the communities it serves.
“The Gemini Ambulance values and mission were tightly aligned with what Allegiance stands for as a company,” said David Lee, CEO of Allegiance Mobile Health. “Through the use of evidence-based medicine and modern technologies, Allegiance aims to continually improve the delivery of the high-quality EMS services for which Gemini Ambulance has been known. We are excited about Allegiance’s expansion into San Antonio and continued growth in Corpus Christi.”
Focused on Medical Transportation and Mobile Integrated Health, Allegiance strives to improve the health of the communities it services, enhance the patient care experience, and reduce or control the per-capita cost of care. Allegiance allows its medical professionals to receive patient outcome data from participating hospitals, which is used to adjust training programs and medical protocols. Through this process, Allegiance Mobile Health is able to improve the way its staff treats patients, which is ultimately intended to improve patient outcomes and save lives.
Allegiance Mobile Health investor and San Antonio businessman Red McCombs adds, “I partnered with Allegiance because of its vision for the future of EMS. Their focus on improving clinical excellence through innovative healthcare solutions is something I wanted to be a part of. I’m excited to see Allegiance expand into my home town of San Antonio with the opportunity to service my friends and family.”
