WCH submitted the grant application last year for funds to replace one of two ambulances operated by the Wayne County Hospital Ambulance Department. “Our ambulance service is the only advance level/paramedic transport service providing 24/7 coverage in Wayne County. It is essential that we have reliable equipment to service our community. We are extremely thankful to the United Pacific Railroad for recognizing our need and awarding us this grant,” remarked, Josh Hysell, EMT- PS, Wayne County Ambulance Services Director.
