HackensackUMC Mobile Satellite Emergency Department (MSED)

When Every Second Counts…HUMC_MSED_Photos
HackensackUMC is proud of the cutting-edge emergency assistance we are able to offer numerous communities - specifically, our New Jersey Mobile Satellite Emergency Department (NJ-MSED) units. In conjunction with the NJ-EMS Task Force, these units provided lifesaving care to thousands of patients when Hurricane Sandy hit in 2012, and will be stationed at MetLife Stadium the week of Super Bowl XLVIII in East Rutherford in February 2014.


What is the NJ-MSED?
The NJ-MSED vehicles are one of only a few mobile medical assets of their kind in the nation, funded through a unique partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense and the Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI). The core of the NJ-MSED complex exists in the form of two 43-foot trailers and a 48-foot trailer with expandable sides. Each mobile unit is staffed by HackensackUMC emergency physicians, nurses and operations personnel, and includes:

  • Seven critical care beds with monitor-defibrillator capability
  • Digital X-ray and sonography systems
  • Telemedicine capabilities
  • Portable field laboratory
  • A pharmaceutical cache
  • Overhead medical procedure lighting
  • Oxygen generators and
  • Technology to seamlessly connect the operations of the two units


The NJ-MSED also has multiple support vehicles designed and constructed to provide on-scene advanced communications to link back to HackensackUMC as well as the NJ Health Command Center, Office of Emergency Management and the Medical Coordination Centers. Additional support vehicles carry supplies and equipment.


History of the NJ-MSED
Based upon catastrophic events, such as 9/11, and recent severe weather, HackensackUMC was allocated multi-million dollar federal funding from the Department of Defense and Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) to develop a prototype for the first ever Mobile Satellite Emergency Department, which now includes an operating room on wheels. HackensackUMC received the first deliverable assets in October of 2007.

The NJ-MSED is able to be deployed both nationally as well as internationally to respond to bioterror attacks, manmade and natural disasters, and other mass casualty incidents in both urban and suburban areas. It serves as a model and sets the gold standard for emergency preparedness.
