Christensen Ambulance Service Inc.'s mission is to provide personalized, high-quality care on an as-needed basis. We have created a practice that we believe in and choose for our own family members. In 1973, Mark Christensen became a Army National Guard combat medic and began working as an EMT in Day County on his return. In 1978, he purchased the early developing ambulance service and began with two high-top Cadillac ambulances and a Chevy Blazer followed by adding a Ford box ambulance in 1979. Mark continues to own and operate Christensen Ambulance which currently covers the Day County service area of 1027 sq. miles 24/7/365 and has advanced to a total of five Type I and III ambulances. The annual average number of calls answered by Christensen Ambulance is 350. The staff currently consists of a combination of professional staff to respond to emergency calls, perform medical services, and transport patients to medical facilities with a total number of 184 years of experience. Christensen Ambulance is dedicated to providing the best patient care experience by maintaining education and equipment standards that model excellence. Day County has one critical access hospital, Sanford Hospital Webster, located in Webster and are fortunate to be within 45 minutes maximum distance of three PCI hospitals, Prairie Lakes Hospital in Watertown, Avera St. Lukes Hospital in Aberdeen and Sanford Hospital Aberdeen. Arrangements have been made with the Aberdeen hospitals to accept patients directly from the scene if the patient condition warrants and the distance is appropriate. Whether we are doing CPR, responding to a car accident, or holding an elderly patient's hand after a fall…we do whatever is needed whenever it is needed.
