My mom has to go to charlotteville to the hospital, but i canot take her. Can anyone recommend who to use? I know there is smyth county, trinity and richardson. The hospital nurses like smyth county but i guess that is because smyth county hospital probably owns them. I want someone to take care of mom. please helpp me

Hospital doesn't own a ambulance service. Smyth County Ambulance Service has been in business for many years. They;re my pick.

Oh thank you. I just assumed the hospital owns it because they have the same name and the nurses that take care of mom like them so much.

There are several around. If it is your money, you might want to do some price shopping. I know there is one across from John Deere and another across from the Reserves in Mt. Carmel.

Business is slow. I bet you could negotiate for a much better price from any of them. Maybe they will get in a bidding war when they realize you are price shopping.

Absolutely Smyth County Ambulance Service. I wouldn't give Richardsons a penny. ....don't know much about Trinity.

I know several people who work for each of the services mention. They are all caring people who I am sure would take care of your mom. However, if I had to pick it would be Smyth County they are well established and provide great care. Give them a call and talk it over.

The ambulance services are smyth co, abingdon ambulance, trinity and richardsons. If I had to choose it would be abingdon. The nurses at smyth co are favorible to smyth co because of the treats they get from smyth co. I had my dad at that hospital for respite care. He went in walking and came out no longer walking. His mind is going. But now we have more problems. I don't trust those nurses now. Going with what they say may be dangerous now.
actually the ER and nurses are only recommending Richardsons now.... Probably because Kelly is a nurse in the ER. It's just like Mozingo only recommending Seaver Brown.... It's all BS!

Richardsons volunteered and helped the Kiwanis Club with the Headstart Christmas Party today at the Senior Center. Nice folks and very willing to help.

Chilhowie Ambulance Service is right beside the hospital. It is a part of Abingdon Ambulance Service which has 7 offices and has been in service over 20 years. They provide great care.
yep

I would go with Abingdon or Chilhowie Ambulance service, Smyth County is not bad either and the others just hire the left overs and rejects from these two offices.....or that is the way it appears to me.
good one

Chilhowie/Abingdon Ambulance. Then Smythe County. Pick one of those if you actually intend to pay your bill. If you aren't gonna pay, go with Trinity or Richardson.

Smyth County Ambulance Service is best. They are always at the hospital when i am there. The hospital clearly like them best.

i recommend Richardson because they are best most honest people around. the people that they have working for them are honest, trustworthy, and they know what they are doing.
