Once aboard our Mobile Critical Care Unit ambulance, patients receive the same level of care as at a Prisma Health hospital. Our Mobile Critical Care Unit (Mobile CCU) is an intensive care unit on wheels that transports cardiac and critical care patients to Prisma Health hospitals from outlying areas.
This specially equipped ambulance is outfitted with the same monitoring systems, equipment and life-saving pharmaceuticals used in our hospital's intensive care units.
On-board equipment includes a full array of comprehensive monitoring devices as well as a team of highly skilled professionals. The health care team includes a paramedic/emergency medical technician and a registered nurse, with extensive cardiovascular/critical care training.
The Mobile CCU also will transport patients for outpatient services or direct hospital admission from other hospitals, physicians' offices or urgent care facilities, or long term care facilities.
