New Ambulance at MMCSC in Lakewood

monoc-tlsMonmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus, will now have a state-of-the-art ambulance on site to help transfer patients needing critical care services to other acute-care hospitals – ensuring speedy and efficient access to needed care.

Staffed by a Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus (MMCSC) nurse, this Advanced Life Saving (ALS) ambulance features the highest level of equipment for critically ill or injured patients. The ambulance will be driven by EMTs from GEM Ambulance, a leading medical transport company in the region.

The ambulance was provided by Monmouth Ocean Hospital Service Corporation (MONOC) a nonprofit consortium of 15 acute-care hospitals, dedicated to caring for the over 2.8 million residents living within 1,800 square miles along New Jersey’s coast.

“This partnership and the new, onsite ambulance enables a tight transfer mechanism and solid system for getting critical-care patients to where they need to be, quickly and safely,” said Frank J. Vozos, MD, FACS, executive vice president, RWJBarnabas Health and chief executive, Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus. “This is one of many recent enhancements that will help MMCSC better serve our patients and community.”
