Mullica Hill, NJ (February 24, 2022) – Inspira Health and Gloucester Township have reached an agreement that will make Inspira the official provider of emergency medical services (EMS) for the township and neighboring borough of Pine Hill. A 5-year contract will go into effect on April 1. Inspira has been providing services to the municipalities on a month-to-month basis since late December 2021.
The contract calls for two ambulances to be stationed in the township, providing around-the-clock 9-1-1 ambulance service. One ambulance will be dispatched from the Erial EMS stations in Sicklerville, and the other from the Glendora EMS station in Blackwood. Inspira currently provides emergency medical services in six South Jersey counties.

I am very pleased to welcome Inspira Health to Gloucester Township," said Gloucester Township Mayor David R. Mayer. "Inspira Health has an extensive history of providing quality health care in the South Jersey region; and I look forward to working with them to ensure high quality health care for our residents and visitors.”
"We are grateful for this opportunity to partner with Gloucester Township and Pine Hill to provide to their residents with life-saving emergency services. Our Inspira EMTs and paramedics stand ready to respond to all medical emergencies," said Amy Mansue, president and CEO of Inspira Health. "We also want to thank all of the EMS squads with whom we have arranged mutual aid agreements."
