Mobile field hospitals are a critical component for governments, cities, municipalities, hospitals, response agencies, and medical organizations needing rapidly deployable, life-saving medical facilities following a disaster or emergency. BLU-MED Response Systems® (BLU-MED) is the world’s leading provider of mobile field hospitals and deployable medical facilities.

BLU-MED custom-designs and manufactures medical facilities and Level I to Level III field hospitals capable of being deployed and fully operational within 72 hours. Our deployable field hospitals are used around the world and are proven in response to emergencies and large-scale disasters, including:

  • COVID-19 pandemic
  • Measles outbreak
  • Influenza (flue) epidemic
  • Ebola outbreaks
  • Typhoons, hurricanes, and tornados
  • Flooding and mudslides
  • Earthquakes and tsunamis
  • Immigration and refugee crises

Mobile Field Hospitals for Disaster Response

In the aftermath of a disaster, hospitals can quickly be overwhelmed or require an alternative care site. Mobile field hospitals from BLU-MED are self-contained, climate-controlled, and designed to provide a clean, safe environment for administering advanced-level medical care. Our mobile field hospitals can be fully equipped to provide the following:

  • Hospital surge capacity
  • Trauma clinics
  • Emergency rooms (ER)
  • intensive care units (ICU) / postoperative (post-Op) care
  • Operating room (OR)
  • Obstetrics & gynecology (OB/GYN) care
  • Scalable ward spaces (inpatient and pediatric care wards)
  • Optometry clinics
  • Ear, nose, throat (ENT) care
  • Dental clinics

Reduce Logistics With Deployable Field Hospitals

Our deployable field hospitals are stored in space-efficient and reusable containers for easy transport to any location in the world. BLU-MED mobile field hospitals offer a drastic saving in logistics and transportation costs compared to medical trailers and expandable medical containers.

For comparison, a single reusable container from BLU-MED (dimensions: 102” long x 41” wide x 49” tall) holds an entire 20’ wide x 32.5’ long BLU-MED medical shelter with 650 square feet of usable floor space. A single 3-to-1 expandable medical container (dimensions: 20’ long x 8’ wide x 9.5’ tall – high-cube container) when expanded provides approximately 375 square feet of floor space.

A single 40-foot trailer can deliver a 12-shelter or 9,000 square-foot BLU-MED medical facility versus two expandable hospital containers (750 square feet).

BLU-MED medical facilities and deployable field hospitals are transported by aircraft, boat, rail, and trucks. BLU-MED also makes carry bags for transport in any vehicle. Each bag is designed for a one- to two-person carry. Bag weight can be tailored to meet your transport needs.
