Emergency & Trauma

Life-Saving Care Like No Other

Scott Solomon was driving on the Garden State Parkway when his vehicle flipped several times and landed on its side. Scott suffered severe facial injuries. The crew from AirMed One responded to transport Scott to Hackensack University Medical Center.

Scott's Inspirational Story

The team approach will address all aspects of your care and make you as comfortable as possible throughout your stay.

A team of professionals works together to help you in the treatment area. This team may include a doctor, PA, or APN, and a nurse, technician and others. The team members communicate closely with each other about your plan of care. Certain tests may be ordered and the results will define your course of treatment. Also, medical services in the ETD are available without discrimination based on age, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, handicap, diagnosis, ability to pay, or source of payment.
