non-emergency patient transfer service


1stAmbuPort is always looking for caring, dedicated people to join our team of Medical Attendants.  We are filling both full-time and part-time positions.  Our Medical Attendants work in two-person crews, transporting hospital patients and others who require transportation by stretcher on a non-emergency basis.  Most calls involve transfers to/from hospitals, nursing homes or retirement homes.  While most transfers are bed-to-bed, we also carry patients from one floor to another, using stair chairs.  Attendants are expected to monitor patients, and to provide written and verbal reports daily, or when necessary.

1stAmbuPort is specifically seeking applicants with either previous patient-transfer experience or at least Basic CPR & First Aid and either your EFR/EMR or completion of your first year in a recognized Paramedic Program.  Successful candidates must have a clean driver’s abstract and be free of any criminal convictions.  Applicants must be in good physical health, and have the strength to lift and carry patients on stretchers and stair chairs.
