Lurie Children’s Hospital (IL) Mobile Health vehicle

This recently completed medical vehicle features a Freightliner MT-55 forward control chassis with a Cummins B6.7L 300HP diesel engine and an Allison 2500 EVS automatic transmission. The all aluminum body has our Extreme Duty body storage compartments added and a vehicle leveling system to stabilize the unit when deployed. Our Intel-I-Touch™ vehicle automation system handles the set up of the vehicle on the route. We integrated a wheel chair lift for accessibility along with a swing out door. Bright LED scene lights have also been added to the exterior. A keyless entry system has also been installed. We also installed a 3-camera rear view system to help with parking maneuvers.

The floorplan consists of front and rear patient rooms, a lavatory and a dedicated waiting area in the center of the vehicle. The front patient room has a medical examination table and physicians task stool. A flip down bench seat is also included. Sliding egress windows are added for safety. The front work area has a sink, paper towel holder and sharps container. We also included a galley with microwave and refrigerator for convenience. There is also a wall mounted diagnostic set and exam light. Blackout curtains are included for the front windows for privacy. Magnetic soft closure pocket doors are utilized between the rooms as well.

The center of the medical vehicle has a workstation with task stool. We also included a 32″ display monitor above the entry door for patients in the waiting area. The fixed bench seat has seatbelts for staff. Custom aluminum cabinetry has been added for storage and equipment. The lavatory has a corner sink and a toilet. We also included a soap dispenser and specimen pass through.

The rear patient room has an examination table, physicians task stool and flip down bench seat. The work area has a sink with custom aluminum cabinetry. The HVAC system consists of power roof ventilators and three ducted low profile rooftop A/C units with wall thermostat. Electric wall mounted heaters are also installed. Dual diesel-fired furnaces provide the heat in the winter. A powerful 12kW liquid-cooled diesel generator supplies the electric power the vehicle.
