St. Mary has added amenities for emergency medical squads providing transport for patients. The new ambulance entrance is a covered portion of the emergency parking garage and will protect patients and transport personnel from the elements, including rain and snow.
Specially equipped ambulance bays near the ambulance entrance will provide squads with power outlets to recharge equipment and power wash lines and drains to clean their ambulance inside and out. A newly installed ventilation system will preserve air quality in the garage should any ambulance engines remain running. And, a new squad room will provide workspace and wireless access for squads to complete reports and relax in comfort before their next call.
