Maine Silver Collar Employers for 2006


Augusta- United Ambulance Service of Lewiston has been named one of Maine's Silver Collar Employers for 2006.


Maine's top ten employers for older workers were honored on September 21 as Maine's Silver Collar Employers for 2006 at the 2006 Blaine House Conference on Aging. Laura Fortman, Commissioner, Maine Department of Labor, and Sabra Burdick, Deputy Commissioner, Maine Department of Health and Human Services presented the awards.


United Ambulance Service, Wheelchair Transportation Division is one of Maine's largest and most respected providers of medical transportation services, serving Androscoggin County since 1981. Jointly owned by Central Maine Medical Center and St. Mary's Regional Medical Center, United Ambulance has a commitment to providing prompt, professional care.


The Wheelchair Transportation Division offers flexible scheduling and a relaxed environment, two reasons of many for their highly successful peer referral process that works especially well among their older employees. Among the greatest benefits that United Ambulance Service finds in hiring older workers are their consistent dedication and the great work ethic they demonstrate.


“Successful businesses recognize that experienced, motivated employees are a key to their success,” said Fortman.  “Silver Collar Employers recognize the qualities older workers bring to their jobs, and make a strong commitment to their communities in their hiring practices. We are pleased to recognize United Ambulance Service as one of Maine's Silver Collar Employers for 2006.”
