This year at the Kingston Hospital Foundation’s 23rd Annual Tulip Ball, Mobile Life was a guest of honor and received the Community Outreach Award. Mobile Life has been serving the communities of Ulster County for many years and has a long time bond with Kingston Hospital.
Mobile Life entered Ulster County 25 years ago, on April 1, 1987. At the time the company had only been around for a little under six years and had a staff of 90 paramedics and emergency medical technicians. The first advanced life support ambulance to be stationed in Ulster County was done so by Mobile Life Support, and was actually stationed on the grounds of the Kingston Hospital.
Since then, Mobile Life has continued to grow and now serves many of the communities in Ulster County. In addition to providing paramedic staffed ambulances to many townships in the area, Mobile Life also provides other services to the communities. One of the major services Mobile Life offers Ulster County, is the Special Operations Team. A Special Operations vehicle is located right in the City of Kingston at Mobile Life’s main Ulster station. This allows for rapid deployment of the SORT Team to surrounding areas, the most recent being the large brush fire in Ellenville.
When asked about who is Mobile Life, Gayle Metzger-Hauser, President, CEO and Founder of Mobile Life said, “the emergency medical technicians, paramedics, dispatchers, and customer service staff make us who we are.” It was an honor for Mobile Life to receive such an award. Mobile Life looks forward to continuing to serve the communities in Ulster County for many years to come.
