ABINGTON, Pa. — The first patient was transported last week in DocGo's all-electric ambulance from Jefferson Health-Abington Hospital to a nursing home.

The short trip — less than 10 miles — went smoothly, DocGo President Anthony Capone told Fierce Healthcare.

The medical transport company has a partnership with Jefferson Health. DocGo covered the vehicle’s cost, and Jefferson Abington sponsored an on-site charging station. 

DocGo delivered its first vehicle in March.
