ETMC EMS to leave Van, other towns
Written by Clayton Neville

ETMC EMS will no longer service five East Texas towns, including the City of Van.

"Due to cuts in reimbursement from Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance, the East Texas Medical Center Regional Healthcare System is reducing spending by 5 to 7 percent this year," said Neal Franklin, GM of ETMC EMS. "These are difficult decisions to make but necessary to allow us to continue providing the core services needed by our community at large."

Effective July 15, ETMC EMS will no longer be stationing a dedicated ambulance in the city of Gladewater, Frankston, Van, Alto and Wells.

"We have communicated with city officials for the past few months about these transitions and are currently in discussions with Alto and Wells for possible options," said Franklin.
