Ambulance Transport

In some instances, a patient may require a specialty that is available at another Willis-Knighton location. Willis-Knighton Ambulance Transport will transfer patients, accompanied by the appropriate staff and equipment for the short trip.  The Willis-Knighton Ambulance Transport staffing is based on patient needs. Our transport system has been in place for more than 30 years and has a variety of skilled support staff, including Emergency Medical Technicians, Paramedics, Respiratory Therapists and Registered Nurses.
