Contra Costa County Survivors’ Reunion Honors PT-1 Crew

A ProTransport-1 crew was recognized by the Contra Costa County EMS Agency Wednesday and reunited with the family they provided with lifesaving intervention last spring. Cheryl Lingbanan and Michael Carrillo were honored during the first annual Contra Costa County EMS Survivors’ Reunion Banquet held at The Clubhouse at Boundary Oak in Walnut Creek. The banquet brought together survivors of catastrophic medical emergencies and the medical professionals or bystanders who helped them with lifesaving action within the past year. Cheryl and Michael were selected to by Contra Costa County EMSA for their superb work and quick thinking to ensure a baby’s health and safety. “Through ProTransport-1, Cheryl Lingbanan and Michael Carrillo have provided quality care for patients from numerous hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. They have demonstrated great skill in basic life support as well as excellent bedside manner and professionalism,” said ProTransport-1 Director of Operations Jeronimo Carlos. “Most importantly, they have a way of making the sick and injured feel safe, and this was seen through an on-scene call that involved a choking infant.” Cheryl’s account of the event perfectly encapsulates the calm yet clinical lifesaving response she and Michael took on the fateful day: The incident occurred after we completed a call, discharging a patient to residence. As soon as we notified dispatch that we were back in service, a car suddenly pulled up alongside our ambulance. A man jumped out of the car and was trying to communicate with us, but there was a language barrier present as he was mostly speaking a Middle Eastern language. The word, “Baby!” was all we needed for us to get out...

ProTransport-1 earns spot in Inc. 5000 for sixth straight year

Trendsetting medical transportation and healthcare logistics provider ProTransport-1 has been named to the Inc. 5000 for the sixth consecutive year, making a huge leap all the way to No. 2894 in this year’s ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States. ProTransport-1’s spot on the 2016 Inc. 5000 is its best since it was initially honored in 2011 and well above its 2015 ranking of No. 4837. Measuring each company’s overall revenue growth over a three-year period, the Inc. 5000 aims to provide  insight into the entrepreneurial landscape by profiling the 5000 most successful American companies and celebrating the innovation that has enabled their impressive growth. ProTransport-1’s most recent three-year growth rate of 119 percent is all the more impressive when the three-year growth rate that first earned the company a place in the Inc. 5000 is taken into account; that measurement stretches back to 2007, meaning ProTransport-1 has nearly a full decade of consistent growth worthy of Inc. 5000 inclusion. The confluence of strategic partnerships and targeted regional expansion has spurred ProTransport-1’s growth in recent years as it has continued to innovate and evolve. Created in 2000 to serve the interfacility ambulance transport market, ProTransport-1 now provides a wealth of services encompassing transportation, communication, logistics and overall efficiency for patients and healthcare customers. Since joining forces with private equity partner New Heritage Capital in 2012, Northern California-based ProTransport-1 has expanded its reach nationwide through the acquisition of fellow admired ambulance brands: PRN Ambulance in Southern California, Century Ambulance Service in Florida, ATS Medical Services in Illinois and Priority One in Indiana. It also provides comprehensive logistics...

East Bay crews team up to provide a special trip home

A handful of ProTransport-1 crews recently came together to provide an Oakland woman with a unique transport home, exhibiting the type of compassionate care and logistics expertise under challenging circumstances that continues to set ProTransport-1 apart. A day that began with the woman, a bariatric patient at Highland Hospital, desperate for any ambulance provider to lend a helping hand ended with smiles as she rested safe and comfortable in her home. Prior to ProTransport-1 stepping forward, a different ambulance provider had attempted to transport the obese woman home two weeks earlier. They were unwilling to attempt navigating through a tight stairwell and returned the patient to Highland Hospital. However, once ProTransport-1 was on the scene, there was no stopping the crews on hand from getting the job done. Initially, six ProTransport-1 crew members were on hand to help the woman into the ambulance to transport her home. Once at the home, they called for further assistance and four more team members arrived at the East Oakland location to provide a lift assist. The 10-strong team proceeded to work their way up the tricky, narrow stairwell, ensuring comfort and safety for all involved. After a 45-minute effort to maneuver the woman upstairs with the assistance of 10 ProTransport-1 professionals and devices to help aid safe patient transfer, she was finally home for the first time in nine months, this time with a new nutrition regimen, a rehabilitation plan, a home nurse, and 10 PT-1 pros she and her family couldn’t thank enough for their kind, gentle and reliable...
