Med-Trans Corp. has new headquarters. The air medical provider said it has moved to a new building at the Denton Enterprise Airport in Texas. Now the operator has more office, classroom and hangar space.
"This expansion of our capabilities and footprints will serve both [Air Medical Group Holdings Inc.] and Med-Trans well into the future," said Air Medical Group Holdings, Inc. and Med-Trans CEO Fred Buttrell. "Both organizations are now better positioned for our expected growth and partnership with our new sister company, [American Medical Response]."
With 24,000 square feet of office and classroom space and 7,500 square feet of hangar accommodations, the new facility becomes Med-Trans' principal base of operations, the operator said. This includes the company's operational control, maintenance control and communications centers. The facility also houses flight operations and maintenance training capabilities along with human patient simulation laboratories for clinical crew training. More than 70 Med-Trans leadership and staff personnel have moved into the new building from facilities in Lewisville, Texas. That space was shared with parent company Air Medical Group Holdings, which is now expanding into the space vacated by Med-Trans.
Med-Trans has relationships in 26 states and operates from more than 90 base locations. In August, Air Medical Group Holdings and American Medical Response announced their intention to merge under an acquisition valued at $2.4 billion. The transaction was to be structured as a cash acquisition of American Medical Response from Envision Healthcare Corp., to Air Medical Group Holdings. At the time, it was expected that the newly combined company would transport more than 5million patients per year through a fleet of air and ground ambulances across 46 states and Washington, D.C.
