A Family Business

Metro West Ambulance, Inc., is owned by JD Fuiten. The Metro West family of ambulance services performs according to the standards developed by JD and his teams to produce the finest level of patient care and customer service.

Our ambulance services provide advanced life support and medical transportation services in Southwest Washington State and western Oregon from Portland to Astoria, Seaside, Lincoln City, Newport, and Coos Bay.

Founded in 1953 by the Fuiten family, we are distinguished as the longest running owner-operated ambulance service in the Pacific Northwest.  Started as a basic first aid operation in Forest Grove and, in 1973, we began the transition to become the full-spectrum emergency and non-emergency healthcare transportation service we are today.

Awards and Recognition

Metro West Ambulance is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services, an independent commission that established a comprehensive series of standards for the ambulance service industry.

CAAS accreditation signifies that our service has met the “gold standard” determined by the ambulance industry to be essential in a modern emergency medical services provider.

These standards often exceed those established by state or local regulation. The CAAS standards are designed to increase operational efficiency and clinical quality, while decreasing risk and liability to the organization.
