West side ambulance helped medics get patient to hospital during flooding


Follow The Republic:


COLUMBUS, Ind. — A medic's assistance to a heart attack victim during last week's flooding had a greater chance for success due to the city's year-old ambulance contract, officials said.

In January, ambulance provider Columbus Regional Hospital moved the home base of an advanced life-support ambulance to the city fire station on Goeller Boulevard, west of Interstate 65.

That change was part of the new contract between the city, Bartholomew County and the hospital.
