About Us

Company History

Chuck and Lee HoagLamoille Ambulance Service (LAS) was created in 1974 by Chuck and Lee Hoag of Johnson, Vermont. The Hoags began expanding the company in 1977, adding ambulances to the fleet. The Service grew to the greater Burlington VT area at the request of Medical Center Hospital of Vermont (now Fletcher Allen Health Care) in 1987. Robert Hoag became company president in 1992. In 1995, LAS joined in a partnership with Fletcher Allen Health Care forming Fletcher Allen Coordinated Transport (FACT), which ran through 2004. In the early 1990s, LAS began operating services within Clinton and Essex Counties inRobert Hoag northeastern New York State. Currently, LAS provides non-emergency ambulance transport to residents of Chittenden and surrounding counties in Northern Vermont as well as providing Basic and Advanced Life Support Services to the communities of Northern New York within established mutual aid agreements.

Commitment to Quality

LAS is committed to providing the highest quality of service to all patients. Services include ground transportation throughout New England for persons requiring medical care during their trip to or from hospitals, nursing facilities, or private residences. We also can arrange for air transfers of patients, if needed. The LAS service area is extensive, with staffed offices serving Johnson and surrounding communities in Lamoille County, as well as extensive coverage of non-critical transport needs in northern VT, from the Company's Chittenden County locations. Additionally, LAS utilizes New York Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT Level III) to transport clients to and from Fletcher Allen Healthcare facilities in Burlington Vermont, and to assist Northern New York Hospitals through existing mutual aid agreements.

Operating Philosophy

LAS has achieved its success through the combined efforts of its employees. By establishing a commitment to excellence and fostering a positive employer-employee relationship, LAS has continued to grow and become a regional standard in the industry. LAS embraces an "Open Door" policy whereby any employee has at their disposal a "chain of command" within which to address any issue related to employment.

It is the primary goal of LAS to establish and maintain a service which, through our professionalism and commitment to the highest level of care for the people and the institutions we serve, will grow and continue to be recognized as a welcomed member of the communities that we now serve and those we may serve in the future.

Both of the founders of LAS have passed away due to complications related to Cancer. At LAS, we recognize the need to support Cancer patients as well as ongoing research, which is why we contribute to these causes and why we have pink ribbon graphics on our vehicles.
