Request for Proposals
(Ambulance Service Area #3 – Advanced Level Care Non-Emergent Inter-Facility Transfers)
Proposals are due prior to 2:00 PM (PST), Wednesday, March 15, 2017
The City of Ashland is seeking proposals from qualified ambulance service providers to provide advanced level care non-emergent inter-facility transfers originating in Ambulance Service Area #3.
Transfers originate at Ashland Community Hospital and usually involve transporting a patient to a hospital located in the City of Medford or on occasion to a hospital located in the City of Grants Pass. On rare occasions, a patient will require a non-emergent transport to their home or to a care facility in Jackson or Josephine County.
Ashland Fire & Rescue is the current provider for Ambulance Service Area #3 in Jackson County, Oregon. Due to an ever increasing call volume the department is considering the option of contracting with another qualified ambulance service provider to provide advanced level care non-emergent inter-facility transfers originating in Ambulance Service Area #3. Ashland Fire & Rescue will continue to respond to all calls for emergency services as directed by the Jackson County Ambulance Service Area Plan, including emergent inter-facility transfers.
Ashland Fire & Rescue responded to 60 non-emergent inter-facility transfers in 2016. Ashland Fire & Rescue makes no promises or guarantees concerning the number of non-emergent inter-facility transfers that will be required during the term of the contract.
The City’s intent is to award a contract for exclusive market rights for non-emergent inter-facility transfers in Ambulance Service Area #3 to the successful proposer for a term of one year, with the option of extending the contract annually for up to two additional years for a maximum term of three (3) years.
