The Harris County Emergency Services District (ESD) in Texas, recently launched mobile healthcare operations with a fleet of 40 new ambulances, equipped with the latest emergency medical technology.
Harris County ESD 11 Mobile Healthcare will provide emergency medical services to more than 600,000 residents that live across 177 square miles of North Harris County.
Prior to launching the mobile healthcare, ESD 11 outsourced its medical fleet services. Now, the district is operating nine more ambulances than its previous service provider and projects a cost savings of $6 million per year.
ESD 11 Mobile Healthcare will operate from a new 43-acre campus in Spring, Texas, that is currently under construction and is scheduled for completion by early 2022. The new campus will house an ambulance deployment center, a communications center, a fleet maintenance facility, and an administration building.
