Our team of highly-trained Paramedics and EMTs administer the best in basic and advanced life support services, meeting both the pre-hospital emergency and non-emergency transportation needs of the communities they serve.
LifeLine Medical Transport has been locally owned and operated for over 80 years. Originally known as Ojai Ambulance, the company was founded by Ojai’s pioneer Clausen family in 1935. For 55 years, Ojai Ambulance served a vital community need as the only pre-hospital emergency care provider in the Ojai Valley.
In 1994, Ojai Ambulance was purchased by its Operations Manager and life-long Ojai Valley resident Stephen E. Frank. Frank began his career as an EMT in 1979 and earned his Paramedic license in 1981. Throughout his tenure in the field of emergency medical services, Frank has remained committed to leading the industry in
patient care outcomes by innovating public-private partnerships, developing paramedic education programs, and implementing the latest in medical techniques and technologies.
To ensure continuity of service, Ojai Ambulance expanded its non-emergency services to the City of Ventura and parts of the Santa Clarita Valley in 2001. This expansion led to the rebranding of the company as LifeLine Medical Transport. Since then, LifeLine’s exceptional patient care and superior public relationships have allowed the company to expand its services to include critical care transports staffed by specialized registered nurses and to encompass all of Ventura County in its non-emergency transportation service area.
We honor our commitment to superior and personalized patient care and innovation by working closely with public agencies, community groups, and local leaders and stakeholders to identify and implement the solutions that improve life in Ventura County.
We are dedicated to the idea that LifeLine’s most advantageous business strategy is defined by what’s best for the residents of Ventura County.
