Through our parent company ComfortDelGro Corporation, we’re pleased to announce our expansion into the non-emergency patient transportation business through an AUD$30 million acquisition of National Patient Transport Pty Ltd (NPT) - one of the largest private providers of these services in Australia.

Operating in Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia – three states which ComfortDelGro already has a strong presence – NPT offers a range of healthcare transport services to major metropolitan hospital networks including walker, hoist and stretcher transport services and specialist services for high acuity and complex patients. NPT also operates a registered training organisation that is qualified to deliver and assess a range of non-emergency healthcare transport, first aid and resuscitation courses in Australia.

ComfortDelGro Managing Director/Group CEO, Mr Yang Ban Seng, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for us to expand into an adjacent area of land transport services. It enables us to leverage on our core capabilities in contract, fleet and manpower management whilst broadening our breadth of skills. The non-emergency patient transport business is experiencing strong growth and one that shows great potential with ageing populations in much of the developed world. With this acquisition, we will be able to use our newly acquired skills set to explore similar opportunities in other geographies.”
