Care on wheels: The Grand Starex Cargo Ambulance

A recent World Bank (WB) study urges more investment in healthcare systems for “long COVID” as a less costly alternative to lockdowns. Given the experience of the past two years, it pays to have your local community prepared for a health emergency.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) there should be at least one ambulance serving every 100,000 patients. Having an EMS on hand is no longer a luxury, but a practical response to providing the public quick, efficient, timely, and perhaps more affordable life-saving services.

As it takes exactly nine minutes to save a person who suffered a stroke or a massive cardiac arrest, it pays to have at least the basic ambulance to serve your local community, school, company, or neighborhood association. But it goes without saying that the ambulance should be managed by a well-trained medical team and a certified ambulance driver.

The Hyundai Grand Starex Cargo’s key features is perfect for this emergency vehicle. It has the potential of meeting Department of Health (DOH) standards for a Type 1 ambulance on account of its famously spacious interiors, sleek but tough body, drive power, and smooth handling. Twin-swing rear doors and the signature dual sliding doors make for quick and convenient boarding, loading, and unloading.

The spacious back is customizable. Partition panels * serve as a safety barrier between the driver and patient compartments.    

Hyundai’s 5-Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty assures peace of mind in the first five years of ownership and operation, backed by Hyundai’s signature technology and quality engineering poured into manufacturing every unit.

The front-mounted engine design cuts down on noise, vibration, harshness and heat, and absorbs the impact in the event of a frontal collision, protecting the driver and front passengers. Safety features, like the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)* allows for better drive control, which makes for a smooth, comfortable, and safe ride for your precious passengers and equipment.

Dual Front Airbags* at the steering wheel and dashboard provide added protection to the driver and front passenger.

Finally, all three variants of the Hyundai Grand Starex Cargo are powered by a 2.5 CRDi (Euro 4) engine mated with 6-speed manual transmission to provide the power to get you through mounting traffic and the fuel efficiency to help you save on operational costs.

With efficient management and administration, every Hyundai Grand Starex Cargo Ambulance put at the service of the community can give the much needed boost to the local healthcare system, post-COVID. You can also consider doing your own EMS startup and join the growing community of entrepreneurs who have happily discovered its endless possibilities for driving business in the New Normal.
