Grant provides for four-wheel drive ambulance

Enterprise — The M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust awarded Wallowa County Health Care District with a $152,000 grant to help Wallowa Memorial Hospital, Enterprise, purchase the county’s only four-wheel drive ambulance and its only ambulance with a neonatal transporter. Before the grant, the hospital was relying on emergency helicopters to make transfers for all patients in remote areas, but extreme weather conditions sometimes prevented helicopters from reaching patients or making safe transfers. The neonatal specialized equipment will allow the hospital to transport high-risk and critically ill newborns for the first time.
