NEMT: Quality Transportation Services

PHOENIX, ARIZONA - Quality Transportation Services (QTS) is a non-emergency medical transportation service provider in Phoenix, Arizona which was owned for a time by retired Phoenix police officer Jason Schechterle and his former police partner Bryan Chapman. In 2001, Mr. Schechterle suffered severe burns as a result of his patrol car being rear ended. His treatment and rehabilitation required many trips to medical facilities. In fact, his interest in providing medical transport stems from his first hand knowledge of having experienced it many times as a patient. His story is described in the 2nd video below. UPDATE: In 2010, QTS became a member of the Power Arizona, LLC family of companies.

NEMT Profile: Good Samaritan Services

NEMT / AMBULETTE SERVICE PROVIDER PROFILE - In the following video George Caswell shares his personal motivations for starting Good Samaritan Services, a non-emergency medical transportation service in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Mr. Caswell wanted to provide a service in his community that could help those in need in the same way as depicted in the Parable of the Good Samaritan. The man robbed and left for dead on the roadside in the parable is alone (relational need), injured (medical need), and needs assisted transport (transportation need) to a place where he can receive medical care. This has defined how his business has grown: everything from the name of the company, to it's standard of service, and character of employees.
