Midwest Medical Transport Company was founded in 1987 in Columbus, Nebraska. The company’s primary focus was inter-facility ambulance transportation. MMTC started expanding in Nebraska in 2000 and is now in 14 locations across the state. In 2010, a medical helicopter was added and Midwest MedAir was created.

Jeff Shullaw began working for the company in 2000 and has held multiple titles throughout his tenure. Jeff’s vision for the company when he took over was growth and culture.
