WHY SHOULD YOU DONATE TO MD1
We provide 24/7 support of the medical community, including EMTs, nurses, paramedics, physicians and state/federal police officers. We are a team of “Emergency Medical Services” physicians in a Mobile Emergency Department and Operating Room. For the 911 system, we respond 30 times per week to critical patients who need care beyond what a paramedic unit can deliver. The patients receive the latest care at their location when they can’t, or prefer not to, get the care in the traditional healthcare setting. For example, a patient who is trapped in a car can now receive the same care they would in the ER. Previously, patients would have died from their injuries, but now they can be saved by these out of hospital highly specialized doctors.
The MD1 Team will go anywhere in the world with our state-of-the-art equipment to save a life when seconds count. We provide the following:
- Blood work
- Transesophageal echocardiogram
- 60 medications
- Surgical equipment and procedures
- Cardiac monitoring
- Central lines
The following chart gives you an idea of the viability and importance of MD1. From January 1, 2018 to the end of February 2019, we responded 1549 times, with on-scene medical control of 273 patients, and we saw 170 critical patients.

These services cost a lot of money, and instead of sending patients bills for thousand of dollars, the MD1 program, which is free to patients, relies on donations of money and equipment to provide this unique care.
