UConn Health Begins On Campus Ambulance Transportation

A bill recently passed by the Connecticut General Assembly allows UConn Health to respond to on campus medical emergencies; and gives paramedics the authority to transport patients to John Dempsey Hospital. Previously, a commercial ambulance company was called for emergency transportation. A UConn Health paramedic would board the ambulance to provide medical care en route to the hospital. “We are so grateful to the legislature for their support. Having the ability to transport patients using our own ambulance greatly enhances the level of care we can provide on the UConn Health campus,” says Carolle Andrews, Chief Administrative Officer.

Coinciding with the passage of the legislation, a new ambulance was purchased by the UConn Health Fire Department. The ambulance was recently added to the fleet of emergency vehicles, and showcases the new UConn Health brand. The Fire Department responds to approximately 200 on campus medical emergencies per year.
