About Us

Medavie Health Services New Brunswick (MHSNB), formerly NB EMS, is an integrated, service-led organization responsible for the optimal operation and management of the Extra Mural Program (EMP) and Ambulance New Brunswick (ANB).

MHSNB was created as part of a transformational partnership announced in 2017 between Medavie Health Services and the Government of New Brunswick to provide New Brunswickers with a new model of primary health care delivery. By taking the services already in place and enabling them to work more closely together, we aim to improve how health care works in this province and position New Brunswick as a leading example of coordinated care.

This new model will position New Brunswick as a leader in the delivery of community and home-based health care, and will allow for more focus and emphasis on the services of the Extra-Mural Program; best practices and standardization; and technology solutions to maintain and increase excellence of care and patient experience.


MHSNB is a subsidiary of Medavie Health Services, Canada’s largest private provider of emergency medical services, with nearly 4,500 dedicated health care professionals providing primary health care solutions in six provinces across the country. Medavie Health Services manages a number of subsidiary companies in the fields of pre-hospital emergency medical services, mobile integrated health, telehealth medical communications, public safety delivery and clinical training.

Medavie Health Services, together with Medavie Blue Cross, is part of Medavie — a health services organization with roots in New Brunswick going back close to 75 years. Combined, Medavie employs and manages almost 6,400 employees across Canada. We support the Medavie Foundation as part of our commitment to a different kind of health care.

Medavie Health Services has successfully implemented various innovative models of primary health care across Canada – demonstrating success in organizing health system assets through innovative solutions. It also has a proven track record delivering an exceptionally high level of patient satisfaction operating Ambulance New Brunswick in both official languages since 2007.
