Building a field hospital isn’t just about components. Understanding hospital layout, patient flow, sterilization and infection control practices are all critical to ensuring that a field hospital performs as planned every time. Our team includes highly experienced medical responders, designers, and technicians. This means that our customers can expect a field hospital system that is flexible, efficient, safe, and simple to use. We understand that lives depend on it.
Our field hospitals have been used by some of the world’s most demanding customers, including the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Disaster Medical Assistance Teams (DMAT), the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the US Army’s Military Medical Material Agency (USAMMA). As such, our products have been battle-tested in some of the planet’s toughest environments. Every lesson we have learned along the way has been used to continuously improve our field hospital systems.
