The purchase makes Transformative Healthcare the largest provider of ambulance services in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, which is determined by the amount of patients served.

Transformative Healthcare owns LifeLine Ambulance and Stewart’s Ambulance Service.

Brewster, and it's subsidiary EasCare have been chipping away at Fallon's market share for a few years now. Fallon still has a few 9-1-1 contracts, but the money is actually in Interfacility Transfers. Losing Weymouth means that they are going to lose some of that, even though SSH already had it's own transfer service.

Fallon's biggest contract is likely the one that they have with Partners Health Care, owner of the Brigham and Women's and Mass General Hospitals. Plus a bunch of subsidiary hospitals, primary and urgent care centers as well.

I expect that there will be some pruning of administrative and management staff even if the name remains unchanged.
We're peace loving people, we're not hunting trouble, but if trouble should find us, we'll stand up and fight.
