Phoebe's Critical Care unit has nearly doubled their fleet of transport units. They unveiled two new emergency trucks. They now have five total.
The additions come just in time. Officials say last year calls for critical care doubled. They had more than 1,200 calls in 2010.
"The majority of our calls are intensive care calls and what we actually have is intensive care units. We can pretty much do for you in these trucks what they can do for you in these trucks what they can do for you upstairs in an ICU," said Phoebe Critical Care director Virgil Anderson.
One of the trucks is an adult transport unit; the other is for neonatal care. Each one costs about $250,000 dollars.
