Sumner Regional Medical Center (SRMC) is proud to announce the addition of the Sumner Station Transport Service, a new hospital-owned ambulance that will provide enhanced convenience of care for patients who visit the Sumner Station Emergency Room, located off Big Station Camp Boulevard in Gallatin. If a patient who is being treated at Sumner Station requires additional, non-emergency care at SRMC, the Sumner Station Transport Service offers a complimentary, convenient ride to the hospital – eliminating the need to call Sumner County EMS.
“In situations where a patient might need additional, non-critical care at our parent hospital, we now have an option that allows us to transport the patient safely, while also helping to free up Sumner County EMS to respond to emergency situations in the area,” said Richard Krampotich, RN, EMT-P, Sumner Station Transport Service coordinator.
The new ambulance is staffed by SRMC employees, which allows the service to be provided at no additional cost to patients, while creating new jobs for the Gallatin community.
“Offering this convenient service at no charge to our patients is another way we’re working to deliver high-quality care and support our role as a leader in the community,” said Susan Peach, chief executive officer (CEO) of SRMC and market president of HighPoint Health System, of which SRMC is a part. “Our goal is to help ensure easier access to a higher level of care when patients need it most and continue our mission of Making Communities Healthier.”
