About Us

Two Vital Ambulance vehicles ready to transport

Our family ambulance business was originally founded by my great-grandfather over 80 years ago. Over time it became one of the first providers of Mobile Intensive Care Units in the South Cook County EMS System. Within the next few decades, the ambulance service would emerge as a leader in the private ambulance business in Chicago. My father would later on start his own ambulance company, starting with Four Ambulances and Two Med-Vans. He set up shop in Tinley Park and it became one of the leaders in the South Cook County service area, growing to 30 ambulances.

Time has come full circle and we find ourselves in a similar situation with Vital Ambulance. We started with 5 Ambulances in the Silver Cross EMS System in the hope of re-gaining our family tradition and personalized service. We strive to become leaders in the industry and a place where you want to work, not have to work. Our employees are not just numbers, they become family to us and we will treat our patients as if they are family as well. We have a long way to go, but with everyone all in, this company can achieve great things. We are very happy that you have decided to join our team and look forward to our future.
