AdventHealth Ocala has unveiled three mobile ICU transport ambulances to officially launch the hospital system’s fleet in Marion County. The mobile critical care units will bring the emergency room to the field to provide an extension of the current AdventHealth hospital emergency room locations throughout greater Marion County. The ambulances are equipped with state-of-the-art technology onboard, allowing crews to provide ICU level of care, including ventilation and lab capabilities while transporting patients between AdventHealth facilities.
“We have great partners at Marion County Fire Rescue and Ocala Fire Rescue and bringing this fleet to AdventHealth Ocala allows us to help alleviate some of their burden of transporting patients from facility to facility so that they can focus on incoming community calls as we all work together to serve those who need us most,” said Jeffrey Bogue, Director of Emergency Transport.
The three units unveiled are the first of four to launch in Marion County.
