Monroe Ambulance Mourns the Passing of Founder and CEO Eileen Coyle

Eileen Coyle, founder and CEO of Monroe Ambulance, passed away suddenly at her home in Greece on Saturday, March 3rd at the age of 81.

Eileen formed Monroe Medi-Trans, Inc., better known as Monroe Ambulance, in 1975 with a staff of 15 employees. Today, the company is a leading provider of emergency medical services across Monroe, Orleans, and Wyoming counties of New York
as well as non-emergency medical transportation across Western New York.

Eileen has been quoted as saying her motivation was the ability to influence the well-being of customers by providing well-trained professionals and state-of-the-art equipment. Nearly 300 professionals now dedicate themselves to her vision of quality, compassion, and integrity in the delivery of medical services.

Eileen’s leadership and influence extended far beyond the realm of Monroe Ambulance. She previously served as President of the National Association of Women Business Owners, President of the New York State Ambulance Association, and was a Board member for the Rochester Women’s Network.

She’s also been recognized as the Greece Chamber of Commerce’s Businessperson of the Year (1995), earned the Rochester Safety Council’s Distinguished Service Award (1998), and the 2001 Active Community Entrepreneur Award from the Rochester Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners.
