Mobile emergency room sets up at Columbus, IN, hospital
AP/Chicago Tribune, June 23, 2008
A mobile emergency room that arrives on a tractor trailer and can be set up within 30 minutes will open for business next to Columbus, IN's flood-damaged hospital. The Carolinas MED-1 unit will provide intensive care beds, operating rooms and other resources so hospital staff can resume treating patients. Columbus Regional Hospital has been closed since it was flooded June 7, causing damage estimated at more than $125 million.
