Who We Are

Orange Cross Ambulance, Inc. (OCA) is a nonprofit joint venture between HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital and Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center. Since 1979 we have been providing quality emergency medical care to the citizens of Sheboygan County and beyond. Today we carry on that legacy as a highly-awarded EMS service, focused on providing our patients the very best in emergency care and making the future of our industry a reality today. 

OCA directly provides 911 Emergency Response, Interfacility Transport, Specialty Care Transport, and Special Event Medical Services to more than 20 local communities. Our skilled team of EMS practitioners respond to nearly 7000 medical calls for service each year and transport patients locally or as far as Illinois, the Upper Peninsula, or Minnesota.

At Orange Cross, we are proud professionals, dedicated to answering the call.


Our greatest reward is caring for our patients. That’s why we’re committed to turning treatment guidelines into lifelines. Orange Cross is proud to have received 2019 Mission Lifeline Silver Plus recognition for applying the most up-to-date evidence-based treatment guidelines in an effort to improve patient care and outcomes in our community.
