American Medical Response, Inc. (AMR) is a medical transportation company in the United States.
American Medical Response was formed with the merger of Regional Ambulance (Alameda and Contra Costa counties, Ca), Vanguard Ambulance (Santa Clara County Ca), and Buck Ambulance (Portland Or.) Laidlaw acquired American Medical Response in 1997. In 2004, Laidlaw sold EmCare and American Medical Response to Onex. Onex formed Emergency Medical Services Corporation as the parent of its two acquisitions. EMSC went public in December of that year. In 2011, EMSC was acquired by Clayton, Dubilier & Rice. On June 12, 2013, EMSC changed names to Envision Healthcare Corporation. EmCare, Inc. and Evolution Health also are part of Envision Healthcare Corporation.

Since 2013, AMR has led the World CPR Challenge, an annual campaign coordinated with AMR’s U.S. operations that attempts to teach as many people as possible how to do compression-only CPR. On May 22, 2013, AMR successfully trained 54,844 people in this life-saving skill; in 2014, AMR beat the previous year’s record, training 61,883 people in a single day. In recognition of the inaugural 2013 event, AMR received the Gold International Stevie and Bronze U.S. Stevie awards in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility.
