Once aboard our Mobile Critical Care Unit ambulance, our patients receive the same level of care as if he or she were just admitted to a Palmetto Health hospital.
Palmetto Health's Mobile Critical Care Unit (Mobile CCU) is an intensive care unit on wheels that transports cardiac and critical care patients to Palmetto 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.
