Maimonides Expands Fleet of Emergency Department Vehicles Thanks to Generosity of Brooklyn Resident

Maimonides Medical Center recently received a generous gift from local resident Mary Carpentieri who donated a stunning new ambulance to the Maimonides Emergency Department in memory of her husband, Louis A. Carpentieri.

According to Dr. Davidson, the ambulance is equipped with state-of-the-art features such as built-in satellite GPS with turn-by-turn navigation, and an advanced system to receive calls from fire and police dispatch. Back-up sensors will alert the driver when the ambulance is getting too close to an obstacle, and a rearview camera will further enhance the safety of the vehicle.

“The features of this ambulance will allow our paramedics to safely respond to critical situations in less time,” said Dr. Davidson. “And every minute saved can improve a patient’s chances of recovery.”
