About King-American Ambulance Company

King-American building

In 1886, the company was one of the first physicians’ exchanges and nurses’ registries in San Francisco. By 1906, King Ambulance emerged with the company’s earliest affiliation with Hahnemann Hospital, a homeopathic institution built in San Francisco in 1884. Headquartered in a beautifully renovated Victorian (circa 1886) on Bush Street in the center of the city since its beginning, King Ambulance grew and, in 1954, merged with American Ambulance. King-American Ambulance Company has established itself as the longest-operating private ambulance company in the U.S.
