Lynch Ambulance History
Lynch Ambulance was founded in 1986 by Walter M. and Nancy Lynch and their son Walter J. Lynch as a family owned business and continues to be operated by the Lynch family to this day. Emergency Medical Services are a passion for the Lynch family. That is why the communities we serve trust us as partners in providing for their residents.
Walter M. Lynch, while working as a Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff, recognized the need for inter-facility transportation of patients that did not require 911 emergency services. He noticed that these patients often waited an extended length of time for transportation to obtain medical care. Those patients needed advocates and the Lynch family wanted to help. Walt purchased his first two used ambulances from a Hollywood studio that was no longer using the vehicles for a series and the company was born.
In the early days of the business, all the members of the Lynch family including two sisters were certified as EMT’s and ran patient calls. From a family of five running calls with two ambulances, the company has grown to service all of Orange County, and parts of Los Angeles and Riverside Counties. Their dedication today is as resolute as it was then, and the staff and medical professionals that work for them approach their work with the same enthusiasm. Over the years, they have had experience in all aspects of developing and operating the emergency medical transport business.
Today, Lynch Ambulance operates approximately 35 ambulances, including those dedicated to Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) under an exclusive agreement. We employ over 140 Emergency Medical Personnel for Basic Life Support and Critical Care Transports. Lynch Ambulance’s dedication to our community is unwavering.
