The Stone County Hospital Ambulance Service provides both emergent and non-emergent transport service for our residents. Our advanced life support ambulances are stocked with cardiac monitors that perform 12 lead EKGs, the industry standard for transporting critical patients. In addition, our ambulances feature advanced airway supplies, equipment to monitor pulse, oxygen and blood pressure levels, arterial gas functions, along with medications to treat most conditions.
Our staff of approximately 30 EMTs and paramedics is nationally registered, with most of our personnel having 7-10 years of experience. Many of them are life long residents of Stone County, and several hold positions with the fire service and law enforcement here.
In addition to our 24 hours of 911 coverage, we also provide transportation for the critically sick and injured patients from our Emergency Department to other facilities. We also provide ambulances for many of the community and sporting events in the area.
