DocGo and Jefferson Health Partner for First Patient Transport in All-Electric, Zero-Emissions Ambulance

The Sustainable Transport Marks a Turning Point in the Way Mobile Medical Care and Patient Transportation is Delivered in the US.

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–DocGo, a leading provider of last-mile mobile health services and integrated medical transportation solutions (Nasdaq: DCGO), and Jefferson Health, which provides a range of primary to highly specialized care through 18 hospitals, more than 50 outpatient and urgent care locations and more, announced today that they have partnered to transport the first patient in DocGo’s all-electric, zero-emissions ambulance – the first vehicle of its kind to be registered in the U.S.

On April 26, 2022, the patient will be transported from Jefferson Abington Hospital in Abington, Pa. to a local skilled nursing facility. Significantly more eco-friendly than its counterpart, the electric vehicle is 1/10th as polluting as a standard gasoline ambulance.

“As we transport this patient in America’s first all-electric ambulance, we want to thank the team at Jefferson Health for helping make this a reality,” said DocGo President Anthony Capone. “This transport represents a significant milestone for the sustainability movement and the healthcare industry. Looking ahead, we are excited to continue working towards a better, more sustainable future for patients, healthcare providers and the planet.”

Through its “Zero Emission” initiative, DocGo aims to have an all-electric fleet by 2032. As the first vehicle in this fleet, the new all-electric ambulance will immediately begin transporting patients regularly.

“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, FACEP, Senior Vice President of Healthcare Delivery Innovation and Associate Dean for Strategic Health Initiatives at Sidney Kimmel Medical College at 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 and Jefferson Health have partnered since May 2019, working on initiatives spanning medical transportation for 11 hospital locations including Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals’ three Center City facilities, COVID-19 testing at Philadelphia International Airport and providing mobile health services to Jefferson patients in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
