Sale Notification Letter

With mixed emotions, we share with you that Best Care Ambulance Inc. will be sold to Butler Medical Transport of Towson, Md, effective March 11th.

The business will continue operating under the same name, will honor all existing contracts and will retain all 60 of our employees. Clients will see the same friendly faces during transports and will receive the same high level of service they have come to expect from Best Care Ambulance over the past 25 years.

Wayne and Shirley Kay Gardner, along with fellow owner, Frank Russum, will be retiring, while owner, Dan Jewell, will be staying on to manage existing operations with Butler Medical Transport.

When making this decision, it was important to all of us to work with a buyer that shared our commitment to our clients, our employees and patient safety. Butler Medical Transport was chosen from a group of 16 potential buyers because of their similar history and values. Like Best Care Ambulance, Butler Medical Transport began in their founders’ living rooms and emphasizes taking care of patients like family above all else. They also have extensive experience serving rural communities and understand their unique health care challenges. We couldn’t be happier with the choice, and we are confident that they will build on our success to further improve patient care on the Eastern Shore.

All involved are committed to a seamless transition. After March 11th, please continue to call the main number, 410-476-3688, and you will be greeted by a friendly voice. You may also reach out to Dan Jewell at his new email address, or new phone number, 410-453-7002.

Thank you for your support, your business and your friendship over the past 25 years. It has truly been our pleasure working with you. While we are sad to see this chapter in our lives end, we are excited for our next big adventure – retirement!

With gratitude,

Wayne, Shirley Kay, Frank and Dan
