Eastern Maine Medical Center Displays New Pediatric Ambulance


 
 

| Friday, November 16, 2007


BANGOR, Maine -- A new ambulance designed and equipped exclusively for critically ill infants will be on public view at 1:30 p.m. Friday outside the Webber Building at Eastern Maine Medical Center.

Hundreds of babies are cared for in EMMC s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit each year, and many of them require specialized transportation, according to the hospital. The ambulance will be used to transport babies from throughout the nine-county EMMC service area who are either born early or with medical conditions that warrant intensive care.

It was bought with money raised by the Children s Miracle Network of Healthcare Charities and its partnership with local Wal-Mart and Sam s Club stores.
