Ambulance Services

Our ambulance service provides the community highly skilled emergency medicine professionals ready to help at a moment’s notice. Apart from 9-1-1 emergency response, we also offer transfers between healthcare facilities 24/7.

Services We Offer

Wabash General Hospital Ambulance Service operates 3 ambulances. Our certification designates 3 Advanced Life Support (ALS) vehicles. A licensed EMT leads the BLS team while a licensed EMT-Paramedic leads the ALS ambulance team. WGH also has 2 ALS non-transport vehicles. This type of vehicle responds to and provides emergency medical services without the ability to transport patients.

The 3 ALS vehicles provide:

  • Contact information for specialized transportation (medical helicopter)
  • Emergency medical treatment at the scene of injury or illness
  • Medical care and monitoring inside the ambulance
  • Scheduled transfers between health care facilities (i.e., to a specialty hospital for cardiac care, labor and delivery, mental health, severe trauma, or stroke)
  • Transportation to Wabash General Hospital or the most appropriate medical facility

The 2 ALS non-transport vehicles provide:

  • As rapid response vehicles assist an ambulance where they need additional hands on a 911 scene.
  • When there are less than two ambulances staffed to the level of ALS available, they can assist a Basic Life Support (BLS) ambulance by providing ALS care on scene and then riding with them to the hospital.
  • When both our ambulances are unavailable due to a high call volume and an additional 911 call comes in, they can respond to the scene to assess and treat patients prior to the arrival of a mutual aid ambulance. They can do so because they carry all the equipment and medications that an ALS ambulance carries.
  • They are outfitted to be used for search and rescue operations.
  • They can be used as a Command Vehicle in mass casualty incidents.
  • They can be utilized for stand-by events that need medical coverage (e.g., Football Games, Ag Days).
