Association Updates

Remembering Bill George

Our association is extremely saddened to learn of the passing of our good friend and colleague, Bill George.  Bill was a long serving executive board member of the OAMTA and we are all incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to work alongside Bill for many years and learn from his expertise and experience.  Bill was a stalwart advocate for our industry; he was tenacious, forthright, and knowledgeable.  Bill and his wife Luanne founded Med- Trans, Inc. in Springfield in 1978, growing the business into what is today one of the Miami Valley’s oldest and largest private ambulance services, priding itself on providing excellent service with the highest possible level of care. We are so thankful to Bill for his years of dedicated service to our industry.  We will all miss Bill and his wonderful sense of humor.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to Bill’s wife Luanne, his four children, and seven grandchildren.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, services will be private.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Mercy Health Foundation, 100 W. McCreight Ave., Springfield, OH 45504.

Launching the Association Forum

We are excited to announce the launch of the Association forum as part of our website redesign.  We hope the forum will encourage greater member feedback and engagement, foster productive conversations to further our industry, and give our leadership a clearer picture of the prioritization of our regulatory and legislative issues.  Starting Monday, September 15th, members please check your inbox (and junk mail folder) for the link to access your forum sign in credentials.  If you need additional forum credentials for member company employees or have not received your credential link after Tuesday September 16th, contact us through the contact form below.
