CMT’s ambulance permit made official earlier this month

NORWICH – It’s official. Cooperstown Medical Transport was approved earlier this month by the state Department of Health to expand its private ambulance service into Chenango County.



Department officials granted CMT a “Certificate of Need” on Feb. 11 after no appeals were filed against letting the private ambulance move into the county.
