Since 1953 Metro West Ambulance has held the distinction of being the longest running owner-operated ambulance service in the Pacific Northwest.
Owned by the Fuiten family, we started as a basic first aid operation in Forest Grove and evolved in 1973 to the full spectrum emergency and non-emergent healthcare transportation operation we are today.
According to the pre-hospital care forms issued by the state to private providers in 1980, which for the first time established benchmarks for response time data, Metro West Ambulance had the fastest response times in Washington County.
In 1997 we were officially awarded the 5-year franchise for 9-1-1 emergency medical services in Washington County, and have received two contract extensions since that time.
We continue to build on our heritage, providing emergency pre hospital care and other medical transportation services for citizens.
Our commitment to community and caring are evidenced in our staff’s expertise, the quality of our services, and the ways we engage with our communities’ causes and events in meaningful ways.
