Kunkel Ambulance, which provides ambulance service in Utica and Oneida County, is being sold to Priority Ambulance.

The sale is subject to approval by the New York State Department of Health.

Priority Ambulance currently operates more than 45 customized Mercedes-Benz ambulances with the latest medical technology and staffs more than 300 licensed paramedics and EMTs in Tennessee, operating as Priority Ambulance, and in Florence and Birmingham, Alabama, operating as Shoals Ambulance.

Bryan Gibson, CEO of Priority Ambulance, says Jack and Cathy Kunkel will remain a key part of the local management team to assist in operations.

“Kunkel Ambulance has a long history of delivering great emergency and nonemergency services to the people of the Mohawk Valley,” Gibson said. “Cathy and Jack want to join with Priority in continuing to provide a high level of service.”

Kunkel, which was founded in Utica in 1939, will continue to operate under its current name.

“Priority Ambulance is a great organization with a mission of excellence,” said Jack Kunkel, president and owner of Kunkel Ambulance. “We are excited about joining the Priority team and believe we will be able to provide an even higher level of service to the people of Utica and Oneida County.”
