Convalescent Transport Services

SJAS offers non-emergent, or convalescent transport services, for patients meeting medical necessity criteria for ambulance transport on a stretcher. This includes transportation for outpatient procedures at local hospitals, appointments at physician offices or clinics, dialysis procedures, and journeys home following discharge from a medical facility.

In addition, SJAS provides Basic Life Support (BLS), Advanced Life Support (ALS), and Specialty Care transport services for area hospitals and nursing homes.

It's important to note that ambulance transportation is contingent upon adherence to medical necessity guidelines outlined by Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance companies.

Wheelchair Transport Services

SJAS offers non-emergent or convalescent transport services for patients who, although not meeting medical necessity for ambulance transport, are eligible for transportation by van—particularly if they are wheelchair-bound or meet other criteria. Similar to ambulance transports, van transports cater to various needs such as outpatient procedures at local hospitals, physician office appointments, clinic appointments, dialysis procedures, or journeys home following discharge from a medical facility.


Van transportation adheres to medical necessity guidelines outlined by Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance companies.
