Envision Healthcare to Sell American Medical Response

In March 2017, the IAEP notified union members of Envision Healthcare’s intent to review options for the future of American Medical Reponse (AMR). On Tuesday, August 8, 2017, it was announced that Envision has entered into an agreement to sell AMR to private equity firm KKR.

KKR intends to combine AMR with Air Medical Group Holdings (AMGH), an existing provider of air and ground ambulance programs. The press release outlines plans for the combined company to adopt a new name that reflects both organizations. Read more in the press release by clicking here.

There have been no announcements regarding changes in day-to-day operations. If you have any questions or concerns, or if you notice any changes in your workplace, please contact your local union leaders or IAEP national representative.

The IAEP will keep members fully informed of any updates or news regarding the merger. 

Where trade unions are most firmly organized, there are the rights of the people most respected. - Samuel Gompers
