AmbiPalm Health Pvt Ltd. (AHPL), – a Hyderabad based Health Tech Startup, today, announced its foray into West Bengal to revolutionise ambulance hailing and allied healthcare services, through its resourceful App – AmbiPalm. The App, which works as an aggregator of ambulances, is set to bring the much needed order in a space which is often chaotic and traumatic to the patients and their families, in their hour of distress. The initiative, a brain child of three entrepreneurs, US based Mr Kameron Abraham, CFO, AHPL, with interests in medical and real estate interests and India based husband and wife duo running a healthcare BPO, Mr Leonard Jackson, CEO, AHPL and Ms Doris Pradhan, COO, AHPL, has innovative advanced features, making it a value for money proposition and a pleasant experience for both, the customer and the service provider.
AmbiPalm is an aggregator of ambulances, having strategic tie ups with local service providers.

“Hiring an ambulance has always been stressful, as the customers are not sure whether the hired ambulance will come and at what time, whether it will be able to locate the address swiftly or is it equipped to handle the patient. All these can compound the trauma, especially in a moment of crisis. AmbiPalm is designed with several unique features to provide respite in life and death exigencies. After experiencing a huge demand for AmbiPalm services in the South, we thought it prudent enough to launch the services in Kolkata, the city where I grew up”, said Mr Leonard Jackson, CEO, AmbiPalm Health Pvt Ltd.

Even though we have been operating in Kolkata through a soft launch for over a year, now we are focusing to expand and enhance our services across West Bengal in cities like Durgapur, Kharagpur, Mednipur, Asansol, Siliguri and others. We intend to increase our operating fleet to a minimum of 10000+ in a year’s time. We are also introducing a new feature in this market which will enable the customer to negotiate the price for hiring the ambulance on the AmbiPalm App, which creates a win-win situation for both the customer and service provider, that enables optimum pricing. Our advanced algorithms enable the user to get the driver and ambulance which best suits their exact requirements in the shortest possible time”, said Ms Doris Pradhan, COO, AmbiPalm Health Pvt Ltd.
