Symons Emergency Specialties, Inc. and Lexxiom Medical Services, Inc. are pleased to announce that they have entered into a merger agreement for the combination of the two companies. The combined companies will continue to operate in Inyo, San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange, Los Angeles and San Diego Counties under the Symons Ambulance name.
Symons has been serving Southern California with one-stop, hassle-free emergency medical services for more than 20 years. Started in Bishop, California in the heart of the Sierra Nevada mountains as a 9-1-1 provider, Symons has grown to include the following divisions: 9-1-1, Interfacility/Critical Care Transport, Event and Air Ambulance. Symons currently provides ambulance services from the extremely urban environment of Los Angeles to the rural High Sierras in Bishop to the remote wilderness areas of the Baja, Mexico peninsula during the Baja 1000.
As the only ambulance company in the region that is both owned and operated by local EMTs, paramedics, nurses and physicians, Symons Ambulance has become known as the company that is "for healthcare providers, by healthcare providers" rather than "for wall street, by wall street". The owners of Symons Ambulance take pride in the fact that the owners routinely provide patient care in the field and remain "patient focused" rather than only "bottom line focused."
Lexxiom Medical Services started in the Inland Empire, and has rapidly grown to become a leading provider of non-emergency medical transportation in Riverside and Orange Counties. With their dedicated staff and unique approach to marketing and business management the company has gained an outstanding reputation as a provider of professional and timely services to patients and medical facilities. A significant part of the success of Lexxiom Medical Services is attributable to its ability to never lose sight that customers and patient care always comes first.
Management for both companies issued the following joint statement: “We are excited about the opportunities this transaction offers for everyone. Our goal is to unite Symons Ambulance and Lexxiom Medical Services to become the premier ambulance provider in Southern California as we meet the many challenges and opportunities presented in this new era of healthcare reform.”
