Jefferson Hills Area Ambulance Association transports patients to all licensed Emergency Departments within Allegheny and Washington County, based on the patient’s wishes, medical needs, Physician Directed Medical Command, EMS protocols of the Pennsyvania State Department of Health and/or availability of the receiving hospital.
Jefferson Hills Area Ambulance Staff reserve the right to transport to the closest facility, which is determined in the patient's best interest to be the most appropriate care for the patients medical condition. On occasion, such as inclement weather or other unforeseen emergencies, that transport may require transport to the closest facility, regardless of the patient's or family's wishes. Transport to the facility of choice may be arranged after emergency medical conditions have been stabilized.
Jefferson Hills Area Ambulance reserves the right to use Aeromedical evacuation of patients which meet the Statewide Protocol Criteria and to where time is deemed as of the essence and transportation by ground would delay transportation times and could be detrimental to the patient.
Jefferson Hills Area Ambulance apologizes for any inconvenience caused by our professional care and concern for the rapid and most appropriate care for your injury or illness.
