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.
Provide critical access to medical care when and where it is needed
BLU-MED Response Systems offers mobile 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 room, intensive care unit, ward space or to distribute medicine and pharmaceuticals.
Protect existing health-care 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.
