Cypress Creek emergency medical officials confirmed on Nov. 19 that the emergency medical service provider had filed for bankruptcy in an attempt to reorganize the association’s debt.

CCEMS, which was first formed over 45 years ago, had previously provided emergency medical services over approximately 177 square miles in northern Harris County in areas such as Cypress, Tomball, Spring and Humble, although a broken relationship with Emergency Services District # 11 eventually led the district to form its own EMS provider, ESD 11 Mobile Healthcare, forcing CCEMS to pursue other projects.

CCEMS spokeswoman Miranda Sevcik said officials believe the move is the best option for the EMS provider.

“CCEMS intends to move on the other side of this,” Sevcik said in a statement. “The best option we have is to protect the federal bankruptcy court reorganization file. CCEMS has engaged seasoned insolvency professionals who guide CCEMS through this process and who will lead CCEMS to a secure future missouri bankruptcy

Sevcik said it was still not clear how the bankruptcy filing would affect CCEMS employees, adding that the next step in the process would be to find a restructuring official through the bankruptcy court. Once the agent is approved, this person will make recommendations regarding the next steps for CCEMS for the future.

In June, the CCEMS signed an agreement with American Jet International, an on-demand aircraft charter company that provides medical flights and organ transportation throughout the United States and internationally. According to the agreement, CCEMS provides the medical flight crew and equipment necessary to help AJI meet all medical transportation needs from its Houston headquarters to Hobby Airport.

CCEMS also partnered with CHI St. Luke’s Health Vintage Hospital, Woodlands Hospital and associated stand-alone emergency rooms in October to provide critical care medical transport services. In addition, the EMS provider offers medical services at events and training services for future emergency medical technicians.
