ROUTINE MEDICAL TRANSPORTATION
The main difference between emergency ambulance services and non-emergency medical transportation is urgency. When you dial 911 and call for emergency help, an ambulance comes and picks you up. Non-emergency medical transportation, as its name suggests, offers medical transportation in non-emergency situations. While some medical transportation is provided on an urgent basis, all routine transportation services are scheduled by calling NDP dispatchers at (845) 876-0338
