Jason Skidmore is a lifelong resident of Maryland. He began working in his family’s Assisted Living Home business in his early teens by changing linens, cleaning rooms, and folding resident laundry. As a young adult, Jason recognized the need for a local transportation company that could provide safe, dependable interfacility transportation for patients requiring transfer for long-term care or, in some cases, higher acuity care at another hospital with special services. He started his own company to provide a vital service that was absent in the community.
Jason has spent his entire career thus far as a public servant working to provide service outcomes that are in the best interest of the patient, family and client facility, with particular focus on timeliness, safety, reliability, and high-quality patient care. His love for children and his understanding of the importance of a good educational foundation is the impetus for now branching into early childhood education. He believes every child should have the opportunity to thrive in a safe, nurturing, educational environment.
Mr. Skidmore and his wife founded Hart to Heart Ambulance Service in 1996. The company has since grown from a single ambulance and three employees to over 130 vehicles and 350 team members. They now serve communities throughout Maryland and Delaware, servicing over 150,000 ambulance, wheelchair and paratransit calls annually. In addition, Mr. Skidmore has founded a management company and Statewide Automotive, a full-service automotive repair business focused on general & commercial auto repairs with locations in Harford County and Baltimore City.
Mr. Skidmore enjoys participating in local charitable organizations and supporting other organizations in the community philanthropically. He has served on the Board of Directors for multiple local and national institutions including EMS Redline, Catalyst Insurance, Upper Chesapeake Health Foundation, Senator Bob Hooper House Hospice Regatta, Union Hospital Foundation, and Harford Day School.
