Specialized Suzukis support The Hungarian National Ambulance Service in healthcare
The Hungarian National Ambulance Service received 170 Suzuki Vitara and S-CROSS vehicles to support the new unified primary care emergency service system.
The ceremonial handover in Budaörs was attended by Bence Rétvári, Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Interior, Gábor Csató Dr., Director General and Pál Győrfi, Head of Communications and PR of the The Hungarian National Ambulance Service, and Róbert Krisztián, Deputy Managing Director of Magyar Suzuki Corporation. At the event, it was said that the 170 new Suzuki vehicles will be used to respond to medical complaints for which on site emergency care is needed.
The Suzuki models manufactured in Esztergom have been specially adapted for healthcare operations. They are also operated in a completely different way from a normal car. Reliability, low maintenance and service costs, and a raised ground clearance were important factors in the selection of the Suzukis.
"The vehicles also have a complete medical package, which includes stickers, light signals and a special lockable storage in the luggage compartment, which contains a defibrillator, a motor suction, an infusion, a medicine dispenser and medicines, among other things" added Pál Győrfi.
“As Magyar Suzuki is one of the leading employers of the country, employee health is the most important for us. As such, we are confident that these vehicles will not only provide quality care for our wider community, but also for our colleagues and their families. This event symbolises for me what we have always emphasized, that Magyar Suzuki strives to achieve safety with its products" – told Róbert Krisztián, Deputy Managing Director of Magyar Suzuki Corporation proudly about the fact that the company's models contribute to the everyday activities of The Hungarian National Ambulance Service.
The newly commissioned Suzuki models with special designs will be part of the unified primary care on-call system, which was introduced in nine counties of Hungary earlier from September and is planned to be expanded into a nationwide network by spring 2024.
