MaxCare Ambulance’s Basic Life Support (BLS) is the foundation of its medical transport services. This service allows individuals requiring medical attention to be transported within their community and between medical facilities. This includes transportation between hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and independent treatment facilities (such as those offering dialysis or radiation treatment). By providing safe transport between such facilities, MaxCare aids the patient in receiving all beneficial medical treatments, regardless of location.
Each BLS medical transport team is comprised of two highly skilled EMT's who deliver professional, compassionate care to every patients being transported. The transport unit comes with a top of the line Ferno gurney and is fully stocked with essential medical supplies including: oxygen, Automated External Defibrillators (AED's), supplies for splinting and bandaging, suction units, cervical collars, spine boards, cold packs, emergency thermal blankets and other items required for immediate medical intervention.
In addition to providing patients with necessary medical equipment and care, MaxCare is committed to ensuring the total comfort of every patient.

MaxCare Ambulance also specializes in the safe transport of bariatric patients. We have the ability to securely and comfortably transport larger patients, from 350 to 1,000 pounds. In an environment with an increasing need for this type of service, MaxCare is committed to ensuring the safety, dignity and comfort of its growing number of bariatric patients.
MaxCare’s bariatric transport utilizes a specially designed gurney which is wider and can support more weight than a traditional gurney. In addition, MaxCare’s unique winch system and specially-engineered aluminum ramps allow for smoother and safer loading and unloading of heavier patients. At MaxCare, we are dedicated to providing only the most secure and comfortable bariatric transport to our community.
An air ambulance is a specially outfitted aircraft that transports injured or sick people in a medical emergency or over distances or terrain impractical for a conventional ground ambulance. These and related operations are called aeromedical. MaxCare Ambulance will meet the medical staff, flight crew and airplane at the airport/air base and provide ground transportation for the patient to the facility and/or hospital.
MaxCare Ambulance does not own or operate any of the airplanes that provide air ambulance service; we only do the ground transportation part of the trip when called by our air ambulance partners.
Critical Care Transports consist of 2 Emergency Medical Technician's and 1 Registered Nurse with experience in a critical care setting (ER, MICN, ICU, CCU) and posses certifications in BLS, ACLS, PALS/ENPC. The ambulance doing the CCT call will have a Ventilator, Defibrillator/Pacer, Portable IV Pump, and a medicine bag with various medications and other medical supplies. Patients that usually require CCT are those on hemodynamic and cardiac monitoring systems, mechanical ventilator therapy, intra-aortic balloon pumps (IABP), ventricular assist devices (LVAD and RVAD), continuous renal replacement equipment (CRRT/CVVHDF), extracorporeal membrane oxygenation circuits (ECMO) and many other advanced life support devices.
Newborn transport is used to move premature and other sick infants from hospitals without specialist, intensive care facilities require for optimal care of the baby to hospitals with neonatal intensive care and other specialist services. Neonatal transport services utilize mobile intensive care incubators fitted with mechanical ventilators, infusion pumps and physiological monitors capable of being used in a mobile environment. These transport systems seek to emulate the environment of a neonatal intensive care and permit un-interrupted care to occur in a referring hospital and then during the journey by road or air ambulance. Power and medical gas supplies are carried within the system as well as making use of external supplies; as available.
