AMR buys Medstat, purchase awaiting state approval

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A spokesperson with the Mississippi Department of Health has confirmed that American Medical Response (AMR) has purchased controlling ownership of Medstat.

Medstat has filed an application with the state Bureau of EMS, requesting a change of ownership, which is required when ambulance services change for residents.

The application states Medstat will keep their name, personnel and their services will remain the same under AMR's ownership.

The Bureau of EMS must do a review of Medstat before the deal can be pushed through.
