New Ambulance Arrives at SMH
Western Maine Health President and CEO Timothy A. Churchill was pleased to announce the arrival of the new PACE ambulance.
PACE Director Robert Hand, says of the new truck, "We're very excited here at PACE to add a new ambulance to our fleet. Our goal at PACE has always been to provide the highest level of service available to the area. This requires a 360 degree view of customer service. We not only want the best providers in the field, we want them to have the best equipment available as well. I think this speaks toward the commitment Stephens Memorial Hospital has made to the citizens we serve."
"The acquisition of this ambulance continues to be part of our overall long term vehicle replacement plan, which means that we will continue to rotate newer vehicles toward the front line in the coming years to continue to ensure safe, reliable, and economically sound vehicles. It is just one more part of our plan to provide the best service we can for the towns in Western Maine that we actively cover, and also the areas we respond to for Paramedic Intercepts which are covered by other ambulance services."
PACE Ambulance Service currently includes 6 ambulances that serve the Oxford County region that respond to over 3,600 calls annually. There are a minimum of 2 paramedics and 2 emergency medical technicians on duty every shift 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
