Mon Health System and WVU Hospitals partner to establish ambulance service

Monongalia and Preston

MORGANTOWN W.Va. – Mon Health System and WVU Hospitals are partnering to establish an emergency response ambulance service. 

The assets of Mon EMS and Healthteam Critical Care Transport will establish a single, countywide emergency medical system to better serve the needs of Monongalia and Preston county residents.

Through this partnership, Mon EMS will continue to have ambulances based at the present Mon EMS headquarters at the Gateway complex, Cheat Lake VFD, Clinton District VFD and Clay-Battelle Health Center.  Other locations may be added, if needed. 

“Really, at the end of the day, it’s two organizations that are community not-for-profits that are coming together, and you can see both of our logos on it,” said David Goldberg, CEO of Mon Health. 

The Mon EMS ambulance will be co-branded after the joint agreement is in effect, and it will display the name “Monongalia EMS.”

“From an EMS perspective, it’s a county service.  And, the goal is put the patient in the center of what we do, drive best-in-class care, quick response time, to make sure that we serve our community.  In 40-plus years, Mon Health System has been operating the contract with the county, and we’re excited for the next opportunity to continue that service with Healthteam,” said Goldberg. 

The combination will take effect July 1.
