AMERICAN MEDICAL RESPONSE CLOSES PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED ACQUISITION

 BOSTON, July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- American Medical Response, Inc., (NYSE: EMT) announced today that it has closed the acquisition of Reed Ambulances, Inc. headquartered in Denver. Reed's 1992 revenues were approximately $9 million. Specific terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
 "The business combination of Reed with our two other Colorado service providers -- A-1 and Ambulance Service Company -- should enable us to improve service levels while holding down cots, all to the benefit of the citizens of Denver and its outlying communities," commented Paul M. Verrochi, chairman and chief executive officer of American Medical Response.
 American Medical Response is the leading provider of emergency and non-emergency pre-hospital care in the ambulance services industry. It currently serves an aggregate population of over six million people in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Mississippi, New Jersey, Oregon and Washington. American Medical Response responded to more than 450,000 total emergency service calls during 1992. Through the consolidation of local service providers, American intends to expand and build its service areas and maintain its position as the country's leading ambulance service provider.
