Beaumont Health is moving forward with plans to sell its ambulance division, which includes Community Emergency Medical Service, Inc. (CEMS), Parastar, Inc., and Beaumont Mobile Medicine, to Superior Air- Ground Ambulance Service of Michigan, Inc.
The Michigan Attorney General approved the sale earlier this month. Beaumont has been working closely with Superior for the past year. The deal is expected to close in mid-December. About 500 employees in Beaumont’s ambulance division will transition as part of this transaction.
The negotiations with Superior began prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Leaders at both organizations agreed to proceed with the transaction.
“We are looking forward to continuing to work with Beaumont Health,” Superior Air-Ground Ambulance Service of Michigan, Inc., Vice President Mary Franco said. “It was also very important for us to transition the staff over to our organization. The staff’s knowledge of Southeast Michigan, combined with their expertise, will allow us to continue serving the community well.”
