In the event of pandemic disease, extreme natural disaster, or large-scale chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, or explosive terrorist attack, the surge of thousands of traumatized, sick and/or contaminated patients would quickly exceed a hospital’s maximum capacity.

BLU-MED Response Systems provides fully-equipped, turnkey mobile medical facilities — including mobile trauma centers, operating rooms, and mobile hospital solutions — for meeting isolation and surge capacity, including mass casualty requirements.

Advantages of Mobile Disaster-Response Medical Facilities:

Provide critical access to medical care when and where needed

BLU-MED Response Systems offers mobile hospital medical facilities, which can quickly be sent to the scene of a disaster or other location. Our disaster-response medical facilities provide a self-contained, climate-controlled, clean environment for practicing advanced-level medical care at the point of need.

Expand hospital capacity on campus to receive, process, treat, and/or redirect a large influx of patients

BLU-MED mobile hospital solutions can be set up rapidly next to a hospital. They are also quickly configured to meet immediate needs and can be reconfigured as needs expand or change. Our deployable hospitals can be used as an emergency rooms, intensive care units, ward spaces or to distribute medicine and pharmaceuticals.

Protect existing healthcare assets and services in the process

BLU-MED’s portable hospital facilities are effective in limiting the risk of infecting or contaminating patients, medical staff, and hospital buildings. These stand-alone facilities are ideal for use as category C isolation units (negative pressure isolation shelters) in biological terrorism events, and for putting aggressive diversion strategies into place.

Can be fully equipped, enabling you to provide advanced medical care

BLU-MED’s disaster-response medical facilities are transported fully equipped with medical supplies and equipment necessary to provide hospital surge support for patient overflow, triage, surgery, and extended care. BLU-MED medical facilities can also be custom-equipped to fit your hospital’s surge capacity needs.
