LifeStar Response was established in 1975 as a family-run ambulance transportation business in Long Island, New York. In 1996, the company acquired three ambulance companies in Long Island, and two years later acquired operations in northern New Jersey, Maryland and Washington DC. In 1999, Care Ambulance of Alabama, a regional ambulance provider established in 1992, joined the organization. In 2004, LifeStar opened offices in Atlanta, Georgia, and today the medical transport company is licensed and provides ambulance and wheelchair-van services in seven states or jurisdictions serving 36 acute care institutions and 42 communities.
The LifeStar Response Corporation - LifeStar Companies - was founded in 1997 with the sponsorship and backing of partnering private equity investor groups. The company's first five years centered on acquiring and integrating the medical transportation companies.
In July 2004, LifeStar acquired AccessOnTime. Founded in 1998, AccessOnTime arranges logistical transportation and language services for the workers' compensation insurance services industry.
Based outside of Orlando, Florida, AccessOnTime began by serving the Florida market and since 2001 has expanded its service area coverage nationwide. The company offers a "one stop" approach to meeting the needs of organizations active in workers' compensation healthcare benefit management and administration. AccessOnTime currently supports approximately 1,200 client organizations, and, during the last 12 months, arranged approximately 250,000 trips and 15,000 language/translation services. – less–ZoomInfo
