Ambulance Services

The Abaris Group has an extensive history consulting with ambulance programs. Studies conducted include feasibility studies, revenue and cost analysis, and strategic planning. We have worked on a diverse range of projects including program assessment and analysis, merger and acquisition, contract and revenue studies, and the development of request for proposals (RFPs) for governmental entities desiring to purchase ground and/or air medical service.

The Abaris Group has completed several governmental RFP projects to select an ambulance provider for various sized cities and communities. For example, for a recent project in Colorado several competing providers were expected to bid for the service contract. The RFP process was conducted by The Abaris Group (including writing the RFP), a provider was selected and the decision has remained uncontested.
