New Ambulance Arrives at
Maine Health President and CEO Timothy A. Churchill was
pleased to announce the arrival of the new PACE truck in
earlier in the month.
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
PACE Ambulance Service
currently includes 5 ambulances that serve the Oxford
County region that respond to over 3,000 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.
