Robinaugh EMS, LLC
Please Please Join Us in Congratulating Robinaugh EMS, LLC as January’s Logan County Chamber Business & Entrepreneur of the Month.
Robinaugh Ambulance Service was founded on October 1, 1976, when Larry Robinaugh purchased the ambulance service from the funeral home he worked for, Eichholtz - Kennedy Funeral Home. At that time, the ambulance service was supported by two emergency vehicles, a Dodge Van and a Cadillac. Robinaugh soon contracted with several townships and the City of Bellefontaine to provide emergency services to the residents.
Larry’s son, Darin, joined the business in 1984 and in 2000, they entered into a partnership and the name of the business was changed to Robinaugh EMS. After 47 years of providing emergency services to Logan County, Larry retired in 2006 and Darin became the President & CEO. Working alongside Darin is his wife, Kathleen, who serves as the Vice President, their son, Brody, is working as an apprentice and Larry’s daughter, Barbara Page serves as their billing specialist. Their business has grown to include 7 ambulances, 4 ambulettes, 15 Paramedics, 4 advanced EMT’s, 14 EMT’s, 6 ambulette drivers, 4 dispatchers, and an additional billing specialist.
In addition to the main office here in Bellefontaine, they also own a satellite location in Marysville. They are the only local ambulance service licensed by the Division of EMS. Currently, they serve Logan, Union, Hardin and Champaign County residents and they work with the hospitals, nursing homes, hospice, assisted living centers, doctor’s offices and local fire and EMS departments by providing emergency and non-emergency medical transportation whenever needed. They specialize in basic and advanced life support ambulance services which includes: emergency responses, inter-facility transfers, ground transport for helicopters, discharges from hospitals, outpatient visits, and are on standby for special events. They also provide ambulette services (wheelchair van) to and from medical appointments, offer CPR training and they are an approved Continuing Education site with the Ohio Division of EMS. Local residents may not know this, but a call to their office and Robinaugh EMS will gladly provide non-emergency transportation to the hospital.
Robinaugh EMS also has an EMS Billing operation. They do the billing for most departments in Logan and Hardin County and all of their billing staff are Certified Ambulance Coders.
Their mission is to provide outstanding emergency medical services and patient transportation services. They believe that this is accomplished by continuously striving to learn, improve and grow in the medical services that they provide. They remain committed to treating their patients with care and compassion, recognizing the importance of respect and dignity for their patients, while serving with honesty, loyalty and dedication. They are accomplishing this as many of the staff at Robinaugh’s have been recognized as Paramedic or EMT of the Year in Logan County.
Robinaugh EMS believes patient care is the best marketing strategy. They believe treating their patients and their patient’s families the way they would want their own families to be treated is the key to their success. Darin shared, “We know not everyone will need our services and we hope they never will, but if the need arises, we want to be the name they know and remember.”
Along with serving as the President & CEO of Robinaugh EMS, LLC, Darin is also currently serving as Vice-President of the Ohio Ambulance and Medical Transportation Association.
They chose Logan County because generations of their family have lived here. They believe that their Chamber membership offers them resources, networking and educational opportunities that will help them to continue to grow and be a leading business in Logan County. We thank Darin Robinaugh and his staff at Robinaugh EMS, LLC for their service and commitment to Logan County and for their Chamber membership!
