Starting with two employees, a number which has growth to eight, QPTS strives to make every transfer easy and comfortable for their patients.

PRESS RELEASE: May 2, 2005
Quinte Region has a New Patient Transfer Service!

Quinte residents who require a non-urgent/non-medical transfer will have a choice.

Trenton, ON, May 2, 2005: The Quinte region will now be getting new help to keep “health care in motion”. Steve Andrews, owner/operator of Quinte Patient Transfer Service (QPTS) says, “ like most other communities across Ontario, the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in Quinte need help in meeting the demand for patient transfers. The demand on our EMS for non-urgent transfers continues to grow, to the point that it is impossible for them to attend each and every one. Emergency calls are their first priority and patient transfer services can assist with the increased client demand to take some of the pressure off the existing services”.

QPTS is locally owned and its services are designed to meet the demands of this community. The crews are highly qualified professionals, committed to providing services in a comfortable, clean, safe and friendly manner. While the patient transfer unit looks like an ambulance both inside and out it does not contain the same emergency equipment. Instead it features a customized array of essential medical equipment to support a comfortable, secure transfer. These vehicles are not intended to replace ambulance services but rather to augment them by providing an alternative service for non-emergency patients needing stretchers and other specialized equipment.

Steve Andrews is a recently retired Airforce Search and Rescue Technician who has spent the last 25 years working in the medical field. He is a nationally qualified paramedic and an Advanced first aid instructor/CPR instructor. He is fully committed to the Quinte Region and is currently the vice-president of the Trenton Kiwanis Club and the Chairman of the famed Walleye Weekend Fishing Derby.

QPTS will be operating within the Quinte region and points beyond to support local transfer requirements starting May 2, 2005. Steve is pleased to offer his experience and skill to the continuance of better health care services in the community in which we live.
