Jefferson Health partners with DocGo to transport first patient in electric ambulance

Philadelphia-based Jefferson Health teamed up with mobile health service provider DocGo to transport the first patient in their zero-emissions ambulance.

The first patient was transported from Jefferson Abington Hospital in Abington, Pa., to a skilled nursing facility April 26, according to the news release. The electric ambulance is the first of its kind to be registered in the U.S.

"As a large healthcare organization, we recognize that we have a responsibility to develop and implement sustainable practices, all while remaining committed to our primary mission: to improve lives,” said Dr. Judd E. Hollander, MD, senior vice president of healthcare delivery innovation Thomas Jefferson University. "We are honored to work with our trusted partner DocGo to transport the first patient in DocGo’s all-electric, zero-emissions ambulance and help pave the way for improved sustainability."

DocGo aims to have an all-electric ambulance fleet by 2032
