|Calhoun's ambulance service problem is lobbing along, with ESP Ambulance
now pulling back from their announcement to cease service in the county.|
Minnie Hamilton Health System, which had subcontracted the service to ESP, following meetings with the Calhoun Commission, said they were willing to take-back and provide the service for a limited time.
"I can't comment on ESP's position, they continue to cover, and we are awaiting additional communication and response from them. We are prepared for resuming operations if necessary,"" MHHS CEO Steve Whited said.
ESP manager Don Delaney did not return a phone call to clarify the ESP position on service to Calhoun.
Apparently ESP backed away from their ceasing service deadline and is continuing to provide the service for the time being.
The providing of ambulance service in WV's rural counties remains a serious problem, linked to a small population and financial stability.
