ETMC Responds to U.S. Attorney Allegations

Press Release issued by Ron Schwartz, President, Paramedics Plus
Over the last twenty years, Paramedics Plus has served communities from Florida to California, offering state-of-the-art emergency medical services (EMS) at competitive prices.
Recently, we have been named in a lawsuit brought by a former employee seeking money as a so-called “whistleblower.” The federal government has joined this suit, also seeking money from us and others.
These claims involve one provision of a contractual relationship made in 1998 to provide EMS staffing for an Oklahoma public trust called EMSA. EMSA is the emergency medical services authority for the citizens of Oklahoma City and Tulsa.
Under that relationship, we at Paramedics Plus helped EMSA provide emergency medical services, which were independently judged to be among the best in the country. We also agreed to return a share of our profit to EMSA—a standard and legal practice in this industry—which was publicly disclosed. The whistleblower and the federal government now say that limiting our profit and returning a portion of it back to these communities somehow violated federal law.
One of our most precious freedoms is the right to defend ourselves against false accusations, even when brought by the federal government. We intend to vigorously exercise that right and expect to be vindicated.
