The Providence Children’s Hospital Chariot has arrived

Nov 26, 2017
On November 8th, The Hospitals of Providence unveiled their new pediatric specialized ambulance.  This specialty transport vehicle is monumental for El Paso – as it is not just first of its kind in our region but in the nation.  Pediatric patients in need of specialty transportation will have access to a one-of-kind pediatric specialized ambulance to provide care while being transferred to Providence Children’s Hospital.   This new critical care ambulance is considered one of the safest and most capable available in the country today. The vehicle was designed and constructed through Elite Medical Transport and will include features such as two independent patient care areas, 14 hours of continuous oxygen capabilities, spacious family seating, six clinical seats, and parent friendly crew cab. The ambulance will feature El Paso’s first driver facing dash cam, Stryker Powerload System, and FleetMatics GPS system. The drivers of this transporter have gone through extensive training to ensure complete safety of crewmembers, family and patients. 

“Providence Children’s Hospital believes the patient and family’s experience begins as soon as the patient meets our specialty transport team,” said Sally Hurt-Deitch, Market CEO of The Hospitals of Providence. “This new state-of-the-art vehicle is an extension of the hospital and the outstanding care we provide. Patients and families alike can have the peace of mind that they are receiving the best care possible.”
