    “We were there approximately 10 years ago, so we are certainly familiar with the Los Alamos Medical Center,” said EmCare’s Vice President of Practice Development, David Copple. “We are not only familiar with Los Alamos, but we also have a number of contracts with other hospitals throughout the state.”
