Our History

Vandenberg Ambulance has been continuously operated by the Vandenberg family since before 1960.


Original Vandenberg Ambulance

The Vandenberg's have owned and operated funeral homes for four generations, and the ambulance service was created to fill an unmet need for emergency medical transportation. In the early days of EMS, Vandenberg Ambulance was the only option for communities located in the south suburbs of Chicago. The company responded to motor vehicle accidents in communities from Blue Island to Joliet, and over time, began serving hospitals and nursing homes. The services provided in the very beginning were only those of a first responder, and that was simply the transport of an injured patient to the closest hospital. Today, Vandenberg Ambulance is one of only a few companies in Illinois licensed as a Critical Care Transport provider. The highly trained Critical Care Paramedics are capable of transporting the most seriously ill patients with multiple IV drips, ventilators, chest tubes or other traumatic injuries. All of this is accomplished in a highly equipped Critical Care ambulance. As EMS continues to evolve in Illinois, Vandenberg Ambulance will continue to be the leader in pre-hospital care.

Vandenberg Ambulance is a wholly owned subsidiary of AMB Tran Group, Ltd., a leading provider of pre-hospital Emergency Medical Services in the entire Midwest. The company operates ninety ambulances in the Chicago marketplace and employs more than 700 licensed EMT's and support staff. In addition to Vandenberg Ambulance, AMB Tran Group operates two other well known ambulance services in Chicago, ATI Ambulance and Trace Ambulance. The company also operates Specialty Needs Transportation, a wheel chair van transportation provider. Together, the companies provide ambulance services to more than thirty hospitals and one hundred fifty nursing homes, transporting one hundred fifty thousand patients per year.
