Communication Center

Advanced Medical Transport’s Call Center is a technological marvel providing the coordination of the company’s caregivers and assets across two states. Housed in an “F5” rated tornado-hardened bunker our Call Center processes over 67,000 ambulance calls annually using advanced technologies, a Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) system and a complex fleet location and routing technology to improve on-time services.

Nationally Accredited

Advanced Medical Transport is the only Illinois ambulance provider to become nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS). Accreditation means that AMT is committed to providing the communities we serve the highest level of service excellence and clinically effective care. CAAS awarded to AMT during our first application and review a “Perfect Score” in 2002, followed by successful reaccreditation in 2005, 2008, 2011, 2014, 2017, 2020 (and currently working on 2023).
