New owners plan to expand Midwest Medical Transport

OMAHA, Neb. — Midwest Medical Transport, based in Columbus, was purchased by Omaha-based Panorama Point Partners with plans to grow and expand the business. The new owners plan to increase the air and ground services.

The company was founded in 1987 by Kim and Jill Wolfe. After growing the business for nearly 30 years,  the pair decided to retire. Panorama, a private equity firm, stepped in and purchased the company.

Plans call for the expansion of the company’s footprint. It currently serves western Iowa to Ogallala and parts of western Nebraska. The new owner hopes to reach more communities in Nebraska and Iowa, and to expand to Kansas and South Dakota.

The company has placed orders to expand its fleet of wheelchair vans and ambulances, and it plans to double the number of helicopters in its fleet.
