Saint Clare's Announces Second Advanced Life Support Vehicle to Serve Sussex County

December 11, 2009

Hospital Responds to Community Needs by Adding a 24/7 Ambulance

Saint Clare’s Health System has announced the addition of a second Advanced Life Support (ALS) (Medic 54) ambulance in Sussex County, which will operate around the clock. The hospital will now have two ALS units and one additional Basic Life Services (BLS) unit operating in Sussex. The BLS unit (88) was recently moved from Morris to Sussex to help meet the growing demand in the county.

“Saint Clare’s has served the Sussex community with ALS services since 1990,” said Les Hirsch, CEO of Saint Clare’s Health System. “We have observed a growing need for another ALS vehicle, one that would operate day and night. Starting in January, we will be able to fill this void in the community while reaching more people than ever before.”

Strategically based in Lafayette, the three Saint Clare’s ambulances will be able to serve the entire county in a timely and efficient manner.

“With the Saint Clare’s ‘ED 30 Minutes Door-to-Doctor Program’ already in place, the installment of the third ambulance further displays our commitment to helping the people of Sussex County receive the best possible medical care,” concluded Hirsch.
