Century Ambulance Service’s growing operational footprint officially expands on Monday to encompass Bay County, Florida, which will be home to the company’s westernmost station. Century has spent recent months hiring EMTs and paramedics in the region ahead of its impending service rollout from a new station in Panama City.
“Century has grown steadily for years, and stretching our geographical boundary as far west as Bay County shows both our eagerness to serve more Floridians as well as our operational capabilities,” Century Ambulance Executive Vice President Marsha Morrell said. “Ensuring excellent service to the people of Bay County while continuing to meet the high standards we’ve set with existing customers in the Jacksonville and Lake City regions is of the utmost importance.”
Headquartered in Jacksonville, Century Ambulance is an inter-facility transport specialist that has served healthcare facilities and patients since 1981; in recent years, Century has diversified its range of services in recent years. In addition to scheduled transports to and from healthcare facilities, Century ambulances and crew members can be found providing emergency transportation throughout Columbia County via the 911 system or event medical services to the Jacksonville Jaguars at EverBank Field.
“Implementing service in a new region of the state requires commitment, but we’re very comfortable adding high quality resources to the Century team,” Century Ambulance General Manager Matthew Johnson said.
