New Wheels for Precious Cargo
Prisma Health Midlands’ Pediatric Transport team fulfills a vital role for our 16-county region, responding to calls from surrounding hospitals when a critically-ill child needs to be transported to the Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit or the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Prisma Health Children’s Hospital. A new, highly-specialized ambulance was needed to replace an aging vehicle, and donors responded, contributing more than $430,000 between August and December to fund the new ambulance. The ambulance is in production and is expected to be on the road by late summer 2021.
