The Team

The Team

From the CEO to each crew member, our team works daily to ensure that the community receives safe, expedient, reliable, patient centered and cost-efficient ambulance service. We take this opportunity to share with you the senior management team that brings that service to you.

Management Team

Coastal has been providing exceptional health care to the community since 1988, and a good part of Coastal’s management staff has been on board since its founding year. The average employment length of our senior management staff is 23 years, which is a lot of combined experience/skills in the ambulance industry. We understand and know the business, the community, its healthcare partners and its patients.
