New Brunswick Emergency Medical Services (NB EMS) was incorporated on June 15, 2007. Its operations are managing the delivery of land and air ambulance services in the Province of New Brunswick. A 10-year performance contract was negotiated between Ambulance New Brunswick (ANB), the company established by the Department of Health to provide ambulance service throughout the province, and NB EMS created by Medavie Blue Cross to run the provincial ambulance system.
New Brunswick’s 39 separate ambulance operators were transitioned to a single province-wide system following completion of contract negotiations between the New Brunswick Department of Health and Medavie Blue Cross.
NB EMS has been managing the province-wide land and air ambulance services in New Brunswick since December 16, 2007.
