WACO, Texas — Children ill enough to need a transfer from a local hospital to McLane Children’s Hospital Scott & White in Temple now can take the ride in style.
The hospital Monday unveiled a custom-built ambulance designed to take better care of children’s medical needs while also making them and their families more comfortable. Referred to by hospital staff as a “virtual intensive care room on wheels,” the ambulance is eye-catching both because of its size and its bright color scheme.
“It’s really beautiful, very distinctive,” said Dr. John L. Boyd III, the hospital’s CEO and chief medical officer. “When people see this going down the road, they’ll know McLane Children’s Hospital is helping a child in need.”
