VA Palo Alto Health Care System Mobile Medical Vehicle

The VA of Palo Alto chose a Freightliner MT-55 forward control chassis for their new four-room mobile medical unit. The vehicle features a 300HP Cummins diesel engine paired with an Allison 2500 EVS automatic transmission. The all aluminum body construction includes 2 LDV-built flat floor, slide-out rooms that are extra deep for maximum interior space, a Braun UVL series wheelchair lift with handheld controller with a custom 44″ x 68″ aluminum sedan door, custom fabricated, self-adjusting to uneven ground, mini-pull aluminum steps and exterior storage compartments. Inside, this telehealth-ready vehicle has two patient areas complete with exam room tables, fixed bench seating with removable cushions and seat belts for medical staff, a triage area with medical testing equipment, a galley kitchen area with microwave and dual refrigerators: one for personal items and one for medical, a lavatory complete with shower, pressurized water system and more. The vehicle has custom built laminate cabinets for storage and to house medical equipment and laminate countertops for durability. HVAC is handled via 3 ducted low profile A/C units controlled via thermostat and 3 wall-mounted electric heaters. Electric power is supplied by an Onan Commercial Quiet Series 12kW generator.
