Village Ambulance Service also specializes in the safe transport of bariatric patients. We have the ability to securely and comfortably transport larger patients, from 350 to 1,000 pounds. In an environment with an increasing need for this type of service, VAS is committed to ensuring the safety, dignity and comfort of its growing number of bariatric patients.
VAS’s bariatric transport utilizes a specially designed stretcher which is wider and can support more weight than a traditional ambulance stretcher. In addition, VAS’s unique winch system and specially-engineered aluminum ramps allow for smoother and safer loading and unloading of heavier patients. At VAS, we are dedicated to providing only the most secure and comfortable bariatric transport to our community.
